On Sunday, 30 April 2006, CRG163 takes part in the Crosville 100 centenary event to commemorate 100 since Crosville began back in 1906. The event consisted of all participating vehicles parked at the Rhyl Arena forming a static exhibition before a road run of all vehicles present from Rhyl to the Llandudno Transport Festival following the former 409 bus route operated by Crosville.
