History:

Thanks to Fergus O'Neill and others the following are the relevant details for our latest Tiger 1000.

Tiger 1000 was new to Craigavon on the 26th September 1986. It remained at Craigavon until the 21st January 2008 when it transferred to Newtownards where it stayed until withdrawal on the 29th February 2008. When new 1000 carried registration IXI 1000 but it was recently re-registered SEZ 9973 so its old number could be used for 124.
