Vehicle Information:

 

Chassis 870006, a Leyland Tiger TRCTL11/3RH was built for delivery to Alexander of Falkirk to be combined with the robust TC style body. Intended for Strathtay Scottish, ST18 (D718 FES) was delivered to Dundee depot as a Scottish Citylink coach. In the attractive yellow and two tone blue livery, this coach saw every day service on the likes of Dundee to and from Edinburgh and Glasgow.

In 1989, ST18 was painted in the "Go Faster" Strathtay livery, the first vehicle to receive this livery with a brief period in a very strange white and blue livery.

1990 saw ST18 receive the registration plate 415 VYA which it still holds to date. When Strathtay was purchased by Yorkshire Traction, ST18 became 418 where, by this point, the coach was running daily 40X services…

In late 2005, Yorkshire Traction was purchased by Stagecoach with 418 now known as 59081, just another Tiger school bus…

415 VYA arrived at Bridgeton Garage on 25th January 2008.
