Vehicle Information:

RMS 714 was new to W Alexander & Sons (Fife) Ltd arriving just as the Alexander empire was split into three separate companies.  It was delivered in Alexander's blue and cream livery but later received the new Fife livery of Ayres Red and cream.  It worked initially from Dunfermline depot, moving to Newburgh in 1964.  It was withdrawn and sold in 1977, becoming a stock car transporter.  

By the time it was purchased for preservation around 1998 it had been re-registered JVS 541.  It was restored at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum in Fife and was again re-registered OSC 711. By 2008 the then owner had managed to re-acquire the original registration RMS 714.  It passed to an operator in Somerset in 2011, but was returned to Scotland by its present owner in 2013.
