November 18, 2009. This is our third 13xx machine and was delivered by our Barney Yourell. Our N TL11 program is almost complete with probably only one or two more to come and now we are starting the N Volvo program.
The first vehicles in this 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.
