RE: Operators based in North East Wales
Pats Coaches, Southsea, Wrexham
Left the fleet is Dart Y42YVV which has gone to a private owner who intends to use it as a shed !! Recent purchases are YT10WLA/B Scania K360EB6 / Irizar - C63FLt which were both new in 4/2010 to Terravision, Standsted Airport. One of these will be immediately sold on to Carvers, Ellesmere Port and the other will join the fleet but will also be available for sale. They will be arriving soon.

Following the arrival of the two ALX400 from First Bristol reported recently the two ex Arriva Olympians they replaced N705/7TPK have now left for Ripley, Barnsley. (a one way journey no doubt)

Jones Motor Service, Flint
It has recently been reported that this firm has sold its holiday business to Alpine LINK TO DAILY POST However it can be confirmed that the current fleet of four coaches and four minibuses will be retained. They are still operating some school contracts, the feeder service for the holiday tours and also shortly a programme of day tours together with private hire. There is currently one coach and one minibus withdrawn awaiting disposal and of course the preserved Tiger JCK892 will also hopefully be seen again at Rallies this year.

Phillips Holywell
This business ceased trading in 2013 however the Solo YJ05JXW has yet to be sold. It was new in March 2005 to the business and was withdrawn in 2011 with engine problems. It does not appear to have been used since and is still at the former depot (now P and O Lloyd) in Greenfield - <PHOTO LINK> - not seen at its best !!

Flintshire County Council
This Local Authority owns seven vehicles which were being operated by GHA Coaches until their demise in July 2016. Since that date these four Optare Versas [YJ09OTN/P/R/S and three Solos YJ09EZH/K and YK05CBX] have been stored awaiting their fate at Flint - OTS is still showing RTC damage sustained whilst with GHA <PHOTO LINK>

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
