NMS 360 (NAC149) was caught on camera parked at Macduff depot, with the sea and the neighbouring town of Banff in the background. Taken in 1961, the Alexander ‘empire’ had just been split into three companies, and although it was soon repainted into the corporate colours of the ‘new’ Alexander Northern, the bus was still in the blue and cream Bluebird livery of Alexander’s coaches. It does however carry its Mf depot plate in yellow. JOHN SINCLAIR
