A post which caught our eye on LinkedIn recently was from Steven Booth at the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust. Steve said the Trust was delighted to welcome Stagecoach co-founder Sir Brian Souter back to its Bridgeton Bus Garage, for the launch of its ‘interactive zone’ which includes a bus simulator and PlayStations that Sir Brian has placed on extended loan. The aim of the zone is to use technology to attract the interest of kids (and bigger kids) to give bus driving a go, explained Steve, who posed for a photo with Sir Brian in front of a mock bus front consisting of the upper and lower sections of an Alexander PS-type body, a type once common in the Stagecoach fleet.
