Not sure which bus is required so I have had a look through recent PSV Circle Newsletters plus Bus Lists on the Web and West Midlands Buses in Photographs websites for two Darts with following history;

Dennis Dart SLF with Plaxton B29F bodywork;

W469 UAG New 04/00 to East Yorkshire, Hull (469);
recorded as Scarborough and District by 02/09;
Whittles, Kidderminster? (168) 05/09,
Cymru Coaches, Tregof Village, Swansea 01/15.

W694 EOP New 06/00 or 08/00 to Merlin Venture (Trading as Valley Travel), Birmingham;
Central Buses, Birmingham 11/12;
Whittles, Kidderminster (169) 12/12;
Cymru Coaches, Tregof Village, Swansea 01/15.

Please advise new owners and dates to complete the record!

Photographs taken in Kidderminster early in 2013.

Thank you Tim,

I believe both of these are now owned by Wyvern Bus Preservation Group, but W469UAG is a non-runner that was donated to the group for spares when they bought W469EOP.

I'm sure Matt will be along to correct me if I'm wrong.

I am still a bit confused as to which bus is preserved; is W694 EOP (ex fleet no. 169) about to be repainted and W469 UAG (ex fleet no. 168) the spares donor? I note that the Whittles fleet numbering did not correspond with the registration digits, so perhaps that caused the identification glitch!

Yes Tim, that is the correct way around... I hadn't even noticed the typo!

I'll edit the post title.
