I have a website which looks at the bus and coach operators in North East Wales. There are current fleetlists for all operators and most have a full historic fleet list.
Included are current depot fleet lists for Arriva Cymru. There are also a number of ceased opertators with historic fleet lists including the GHA Group

Coastline Taxis Rhyl – JWS (Cars) Limited
Today was the first day that Coastline have operated the 55 / X5 service Ruthin – Corwen – (Wrexham) service. They have recently won this Denbighshire CC contract from Llew Jones. The service will initially follow exactly the same timetable - which is available on the Denbighshire website.

One or two teething problems noticed today. The 9.30 departure from Ruthin was nearly 20 minutes late.

Apparently two new buses are on order ( 1 x Metrocity and 1 x Solo SR) but initially two Optare demonstrators / loan vehicles are being used - Versa YJ64DZL (Photo 1) and Solo SR YJ64DVD [PHOTO2]. The latter is no stranger to the area as two years ago it was being trialled by GHA from Ruthin working mainly the Ruthin – Mold corridor.

YJ64DZL also spent a few months on loan to Manchester Airport during last year.

What is up with the versa? They are all down as won't start and 'uplift' only (I think uplift means tow. Unsure. I would just say 'needs towing')

The company have yet again upgraded their fleet and three Mercedes-Benz Tourismos have joined the fleet. They are yet to be given registration marks but will be '18' plates. They are already in the company livery and whilst two are tri-axles and one a double axle they are believed to be 53 seaters.
The three '63' plate Tourismos BX63BEO, BX63BFE and DF63KOD have left in part exchange to Evobus, Coventry.

George Edwards, Bwlchgwyn (and Eagles and Crawford, Mold)
Just arrived is OXL988 an Alexander Dennis Javelin / Plaxton Profile - C53F which was new in 2005 to MoD contractor (Lex) - by 6/2014 with to Orion, Longsight, Manchester and in 10/2017 Lakeside, Ellesmere. It previously carried registrations MH05NFJ and W14BUS. - <<PHOTO>>

WIL8914 a Dennis Javelin / Plaxton Première 320 – C53F has left the fleet and gone to Eagles and Crawford in Mold. It may be used initially but the main intention of the purchase is to extract the engine for another vehicle.
