Vintage Bus Trip

I attended the 'Ships Ahoy' event at the Glenlee sailing ship today, and part of the day was allocated to two MacBrayne's buses.

The owners - who were also the drivers - kindly made their vehicles and services available to give us a trip around Glasgow.

I was only on the one myself - and the owner Martin was very courteous and took the time to discuss aspects of the bus and it's history.

I really enjoy days like this - a true link with our past - and we can enjoy the nostalgia with a real journey.
