Blast from the past!

One of a batch of ex Western Welsh Alexander-bodied Leyland Atlantean PDR1s passed to Western National, seen here in Plymouth on 1st August 1980

I was never an Atlantean fan but these Alexander bodied machines always seemed so special compared with the standard Citybus examples. Probably just because they were so different to anything else down here. Mostly used on Callington routes they did occasionally appear on Plymouth City routes such as the 7.
Still seems amazing to think that this photo was taken over twenty eight years ago - I must be getting old!

SouWester has a great set of 1980s photos here on his Flickr account
