Continuing the variety of buses used on our trips this year, we were given the use of First Edinburgh’s 30358 (G281 OGE), a Volvo Citybus/Alexander from the Borders fleet based at Galashiels. This is the last Scottish-originated Volvo Citybus remaining with First Edinburgh and proved to be a fine beast to take round our Edinburgh route. Among other places, we visited Ocean Terminal and Edinburgh Park, and Donald Stirling had the pleasure of an extra 30 miles or so both before and after while collecting the bus from Galashiels and taking it back again afterwards in the dark. As usual, the event was enjoyed by a good number of members.
Many thanks to the management of First Edinburgh at Galashiels for the hire of this bus.
