It's interesting that all of the coaches here are front engine and either half cab or full fronted versions on older design half cab type chassis. If the film had been made two or three years later, the front line fleets of the big companies would look very different being on the new underfloor engined chassis, with bodies like the Burlingham Seagull. How you view this depends on whether you like the half cab designs, or the ECW Queen Mary on the Bristol chassis, or go for the modern.

Also, how much better does the Western National coach look with the green highlight of the radiator grille?

Several sequences mix similar but different coaches in the same footage, and many coaches appear in different points through the film.

Footage from this was used in the BBC's Timeshift documentary 'The Golden Age of Coach Travel' in 2011.
