Danny Greene 1947-2017

It's with great sadness we report the passing of Taybus family member and supporter Danny Greene on 18 May 2017, his 70th birthday, following a short illness.

Danny started off as conductor with Ribble Motor Services before training as a driver at their Frenchwood Depot in Preston in the early 1970s. By the late 1980s he served time on Ribble Kingfisher duties, worked the Zippy service and carried out National Express work travelling all over Great Britain.

Two of Danny's grandsons have inherited his love of, and interest in, buses and are long-time members and active supporters of TVVS. We extend our sympathies to them and their family at this difficult time.

Event: 21 May 2017 - Scottish Vintage Bus Museum Running Day

Sunday saw Taybus Vintage Vehicle Society attend its first transport event for 2017.

Attending was Leyland National WBW735X - restored from our collection, fresh from several months of restoration work, which not only was on display but completed two very popular runs to Saline and Kelty.

Here's Nellie the National at Lathalmond being kept company by 1984 Leyland National 2 A108CFS 108 Lothian.
