Vehicle Information:

 

SMS 120P was one of 12 Daimler Fleetlines delivered to Alexander (Midland) in 1976. It was based initially at Milngavie, but moved to Perth in 1977. It was transferred to Alexander (Northern) as NRF18 in Spring 1977 and then to Alexander (Fife) as FRF80 (later 720) in 1987. It moved again to Highland Omnibuses (numbered D920) in 1988. It was acquired for preservation in 1997 and has since undergone a thorough restoration returning it to as new condition as MRF120.

The first photo below shows the bus stabled at Clan Coaches yard, Kyle of Lochalsh, in the mid-1990s. The next two photos show the bus as it is now re-creating scenes of its early life when at Milngavie.  The fourth was taken in Aberdeen when it was with Alexander (Northern).
