TIGER 400 ARRIVES

July 24, 2008. Tiger 400 arrived today. She is another superb machine. But the first picture has to be fantastic and is something I would never have dreamed of a few years ago. It has more Tigers than some Ulsterbus outstations but then it is the new Kells outstation for Ballymena! It has to be one of the most unique photos in preservation.

Barney Yourell delivered her as usual.

TIGER 400 GOES TO CORK

July 31, 2008. We took Tiger 400 for a run to Cork today to get some photos and we think it was the first visit of an Ulsterbus liveried Tiger to Parnell Place. She is an absolutely beautiful machine and one of the nicest I have driven.
