Great photo for those of us who visited Dudley in this era !! - - - "Dig that" clean + tidy mellow red livery !!

I knew you'd like this one. Shame it would all be repainted to blue and cream soon after.

I agree ! -- -- Ironically, things have gone full circle, with buses of National Express West Midlands apparently to be in light red, AND some of the buses used by other operators in the WM region will be in the same red livery -- -- the first examples with DIAMOND, on joint services including the Dudley area !!
