Event: 23 & 24 July 2016 - Day Out with Thomas at Caledonian Railway's Bridge of Dun station

On Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 July 2016 our Leyland National WBW735X - restored was providing the link service between Caledonian Railway's Bridge of Dun station and Montrose High Street for the first of their two special "Day Out with Thomas" weekends. We ran six trips per day and carried over 200 passengers with the highlight being the "race" between Thomas and the bus from the station to a nearby bridge.

Between duties at Bridge of Dun railway station.

Event: 10 July 2016 - Scottish Transport Extravaganza at Glamis Castle

Our fourth outing of 2016 saw us take three vehicles to the Scottish Transport Extravaganza at Glamis Castle - Daimler CVG6 ETS964 - restored, Humber Hawk RFF340 - restored and Leyland National WBW735X - restored.

Once again there was quite a lot of rain making the ground very soft and the exit quickly turned to mud. The Humber and Daimler took this in their stride but the National needed a little persuasion to leave the event!

Ready to leave:


Three vehicles on display:


Our restored Corporation crest was on display with the Daimler CVG6 for the first time:

Two buses and a (very) muddy road:
