TVVS: The Taybus Vehicle Collection

When Taybus was formed in 1995 to look after Dundee Corporation's Daimler CVG6 ETS964 the founding members had the foresight to trace where significant local vehicles were still being used or stored before approaching the owners to see if they could be acquired for future preservation.

By Taybus owning these vehicles it meant they wouldn't be lost to the local area as our members are free to remove their buses or offer them for sale.

The first bus acquired for preservation was Tayside Regions Bristol VRT OSR204R and now the list has grown to some nine vehicles:

- Dundee Corporation Daimler CVG6 ETS964 (donated by Xplore Dundee)
- Dundee Corporation Daimler Fleetline GSL908N
- Tayside Region Bristol VRT OSR204R
- Tayside Region Volvo Ailsa WTS272T
- Tayside Region Leyland Leopard GSL306W
- Tayside Region Volvo Ailsa HSR46X
- Northern Scottish Leyland Leopard GSO86V
- Strathtay Scottish Leyland Olympian M953XES (donated by Stagecoach Fife)
Reliance-Mercury tug Q693GCM


In addition there are currently another 17 vehicles in our collection which are owned by our members and stored at various sites across Scotland and England.

We have been made aware of a local transport museum's website which features some of our copyrighted photographs of our vehicles. To be clear we have absolutely no links to this organisation and none of our vehicles have been loaned to them for display either at their premises or their events since 2014.
