Janaury 26, 2010. This is our first machine of 2010 and was delivered by our Barney Yourell.
The first vehicles in the N Volvo program are intended to be the "Ballymena Five", 1309, 1310, 1311, 1312 and 1313. We think it will be an unique first for preservation to have five vehicles in numerical order and from the same depot all together. Ballymena can be proud of the condition these are in which is why they were chosen.
