Was that Lloyds Coaches of Machynlleth?

That's a long way away from Hereford!
Lloyds Coaches do an quite a large amount of Rail Replacement Work for Arriva Trains Wales and I would say they were doing the Hereford Shrewsbury Rail Replacement as the line is Closed at the weekend just gone and again this weekend. With the Hereford Worcester Line closed & Hereford Shrewsbury line closed to there must of been some passengers trying to get on the wrong buses

There was two of them there, the other can partly be seen next to the Johnsons Coach.

I can assure you it was not a pleasure to be a passenger on it though. Rock hard upright seats, a handrail that doesn't stop rattling...... after 1hr 45 mins of that I sprinted off the bus like Usain Bolt....... only to notice later at lunchtime it was going to be my return bus too.......needless to say I waited a little longer for the comfort of a Yeomans Scania Irizar...

I saw them working off Chester earlier in the year and I saw them working off Leamington Spa when the line was closed due to a landslide last year. :) "Have coach , will travel" is the saying for go anywhere operators - its all work and keeps the wheels rolling. !! 8-)
