Housed in a former bus garage in the south-east of the city, the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust has regular open days with buses running to and from the city centre and Riverside Museum. Trust Chair Steven Booth said that the Trust’s 14-15 October open weekend had been a record-breaker, with almost 3,500 visitors and some 10,000 passenger journeys made on its buses, as well as its single busiest day in recent times.

We also had just over 40 visiting vehicles, the majority of which were there for both days,” Steven explained. “This year we expanded our bus service by introducing Kelvingrove as a destination to tie in with our pop-up exhibition there. We also had a number of ‘excursions’ including one to mark 50 years of both the Volvo Ailsa and another to mark 50 years since the formation of Greater Glasgow Passenger Transport Executive (GGPTE).
