LEYLAND TIGER 1312

ULSTERBUS 1312 ARRIVES

January 28, 2010. This is our second machine of 2010 and was delivered by our Barney Yourell.

The first vehicles in the Ulsterbus N Volvo preservation program are 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. 1312 was the last of the Ballymena Five to arrive and all give are in absolutely superb condition.

1312 is an Alexander N type Volvo engined Leyland Tiger.
