Newly restored CRG 163 becomes a bit of a celebrity by being featured on the front page of the Bus & Coach Preservation magazine, Volume 7, Issue 2 with a five page internal spread.

This included a full photo shoot of the vehicle between Bangor and Menai Bridge with the main cover photo taken of CRG 163 driving through the famous arches of the Menai Suspension Bridge displaying X10 Bangor on the destination screen.  Coincidentally the X10 never operated to Bangor but operated from Cemaes Bay to Liverpool and vice versa. Bangor was added as the destination for the photo shoot as on the day the final destination was Bangor.

X10 was added on the destination screen out of respect for Crosville’s Amlwch staff.  This destination of X10 Bangor would be used for the EFE model launched in September 2006.
