A small municipal operation.

Castro Daire is a small town in the north of Portugal. At the time of my visits, bus operation thereabouts was dominated by the large independent based in there, Empresa Guedes. It came as a bit of a surprise one day whilst exploring the back streets to come upon three buses parked up claiming to be from the 'municipal' fleet. I've no idea what work they performed, though I suspect only school duties. ND-94-99 is I think a late UTIC re-body. It was a 505 powered AEC, but I can't now remember whether it was a Reliance, or a sort or UTIC Monocoach type integral.
