Edward Idris Goodwin

Maid of the Mountains  Motors” 

Pen Stryt, Treuddyn, Mold 


This operator began business about 1924 with a Ford TT 14 seater charabanc. He ran services from Treuddyn to Wrexham,  Treuddyn to Mold and Coed Talon to Ruthin. In 1932 he purchased new a Guy FBB – registered number DM7678 with 32 seats. 

In November 1932 he surrendered his licences to the Wrexham based Western Transport that soon afterwards was taken over by Crosville.  Idris then went to work for Crosville and was in charge of the Johnstown on its closure in 1972.


The table below gives a list of all recorded vehicles known to have been with this operator.  I am indebted to David Donati for his dedicated work in compiling this data and enabling me to present it.

In the right hand column - where available - there is a link to a photograph of the vehicle.  The photo will open in a new window.  Links in CAPITAL LETTERS suggest the vehicle is seen when with the operator.

Chassis and body numbers are to be found on the right hand side of the table below. You may need to scroll to see them.
