GCS 50V Clydeside 2000
Freshly painted in Clydeside 2000 livery, GCS 50V is seen in Kilblain Street Greenock.
In this photograph GCS 50V is pictured in the yard of Greenock Depot having returned after operating service 43 in Leven Road. As can be seen clearly in this picture, the Leyland Leopard badge has been removed from the front and has been replaced with the Clydeside 2000 fleet name.
In this photograph GCS 50V is pictured at Church Street, Port Glasgow whilst operating service 48 to Devol.
GCS 50V is seen approaching the Kilblain Street bus stance Greenock. This photo is taken a few meters back from the first photo on this page. Photo Copyright Bobby Black George 17 November 1995.
In this photo GCS 50V is pictured in Renfield Street, Glasgow. Although showing fleet number G750, she is operating an Inchinnan depot service 23 Glasgow to Erskine. This would suggest this picture would have been taken arround 1994 or early 1995.
A typical busy day in Greenock's Kilblain Street. The picture on the right shows how the back of GCS 50V would have looked before the Bootlid was removed, you will also notice the Clydeside 2000 policy of displaying the fleet number at all four corners of the vehicle!
In this final photograph taken near the Bay hotel in Gourock, it can be seen that GCS 50V has now had the silver front grill repainted red followed by black. This would suggest this picture was taken after her return from Inchinnan to Greenock in May 1995 but prior to her June 1996 repaint into Clydeside Buses red, yellow and white livery.
