ULSTERBUS VAN HOOL TIGER 598 ARRIVES

April 15, 2008. As usual Barney Yourell delivered Ulsterbus Van Hool TL11 Leyland Tiger safely to the depot in Wicklow. This is an absolutely superb machine as can be clearly seen from the photos. She is rather unique in that as we understand it she was acquired from Shearings by Ulsterbus but on arrival became surplus to their requirements, ended up in the driving school and never had bums on seats in Northern Ireland. Can anyone fill out her history please?

It is worth noting that the maintenance in Northern Ireland Translink is so superb that every machine we get is in new condition and our Leopards and Tigers would pass for new and could go into service in the morning. This machine is another example.
