CRG163 returns home to Amlwch, parking on Lôn Goch, opposite the site of the former Crosville depot there out of respect for the depot and staff.  Amlwch depot was sold by Crosville in 1987 with the building demolished to make way for a supermarket.

CRG163 proudly displays ‘X10’ on its destination once again, which was the express service once operated by CRG163 when as ERG163 on Saturdays between Cemaes Bay, Amlwch and Liverpool when based at Crosville’s Amlwch depot.
