Reading Transport AEC Regent III
Reading's four East Lancs bodied lowbridge AEC Regent IIIs were a popular feature of the fleet for many years. Here 98 (LDP945), renumbered as 198, is seen attending SHOWBUS 75 at Hillingdon.

Reading Transport Metro-Scania 1
Regent 198 was accompanied by 1 (GRX1N) a then new Metro-Scania dual door Metropolitan doubledecker. The purchase reflected the always unusual nature of the Reading fleet. Metropolitans found favour in large conurbation fleets - often as one off substantial batches - Reading and Newport were amongst the few smaller fleets to adopt them.
