I was working on the Echo Box in the early 1960s. I got to know a lot of the characters who worked for Western Welsh, Rhondda Coaches, Red & White, Coity Motors and the luxorious N & C Coaches from the Neath area. Jack Golden was the most memorable as many a night I would catch him sleeping in the buses that were parked up for the night in the depot. I used to use the station canteen, which was a very good place to eat and I might add very reasonably priced. David Moruzzi used to keep the cafe which is now known as the Cup & Saucer, right opposite the bus station, where you could sit wi a nice cuppa in the warm, and still see if your bus came into the depot, so you wouldn't miss it. Those days have gone forever, Bridgend's loss!
