LEYLAND TIGER 1271

ULSTERBUS 1271 ARRIVES

December 16, 2009. 1271 arrived at the depot today driven as always by Barney Yourell. It is probably the last TL11 N Tiger we will get for some years and is intended as backup to keep the other fleet operational. From here out it will be 13xx machines of which 1311 is expected shortly to make the fourth of the "Ballymena Five" with 1312 to follow shortly after. We are hoping to have a photo of all five before Christmas to do a special Ulsterbus calendar especially for our Ballymena friends. Photos of 1271 will follow when I get back from abroad.
