Red Wigan buses?

How old are you, Geoff? Prior to Selnec/GMPT Wigan Corporation buses were always Cherry and White.

Can't see the unique green lights either side of the destination board.I think you call it artistic licence.Not100% accurate.

I'm 61 and the buses were maroon and white, same as Bolton. Have a look hat some of the colour photos on this site.

Geoff, Bolton's buses were a lot darker in color than ours. I know this because I worked at de Havilland Propellers from 1952 to 1965 and I can assure you that they were nowhere near the same colour.

Maybe, but still maroon and not red as the bus in the painting is.
