Days Out And About 2013

Below are details and pictures of various days out that myself, friends and other museum members have had on GCS 50V, HSD 73V, B509 YAT and E187 HSF. This page of course will be updated over time! If anyone has any other pictures taken on any of these days out please let me know!

Sunday 19th May 2013

Today was the annual spring running day at SVBM Lathalmond. The weather fairly good for most of the day and although fewer vehicles attended this year, visitor numbers were good and an excellent day was had. HSD 73V was already at Lathalmond along with my Orkney Coaches Bedford, so we travelled through with E187 HSF, my Eastern Scottish Volvo Citybus and GCS 50V Leyland Leopard. My Bedford B509 YAT took part providing a service to Saline and some internal services.

Sunday 30th June 2013

This was the day of First Aberdeen's open day at its Aberdeen depot and worldwide head office, King Street, Aberdeen and celebrated 115 years of service to Aberdeen. As part of the open day event a fleet of new ADL Enviro 300 buses entered service. I was asked if I could support the event with a vintage vehicle. I was delighted to be able to take part in the event and delivered E187 HSF, an Ex First Group vehicle the week before the event and returned on the day of the event to take part.

My visit to the open day at Aberdeen even made it into the First ScotRail weekly staff bulletin.

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th August 2013

This was the weekend of the annual SVBM Lathalmond open day event. As with previous years I travelled up with my two Clydeside Scottish vehicles and camped over till the Sunday. Both GCS 50V and E187 HSF operated free services to Dunfermline, and a great weekend was had by all.
