The bus wot I bought

VSC86 is a Leyland Tiger Cub bought by Edinburgh Corporation Transport in 1960. This is a picture of it returning from its last ever revenue-earning outing, to its stable at Marine Garage.


From there it passed into preservation. I was in the fortunate position to be onbe of those, though my professinal career took me elsehwhere shortly afterward and I relinquished my share. 86 continued to be looked after by dedicated individuals whose efforts are rewarded by its current excellent condition.


However in this picture it has a distinctly careworn appearance.
