GVVT Open Day 2012: A Glasgow Corporation Leyland Titan At Riverside Museum
One of several classic buses running services between Riverside Museum and Bridgeton Bus Garage, home of the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust (GVVT).

From the GVVT website:
L163 transferred with the rest of the fleet from Glasgow Corporation to GGPTE in 1973, and was sold into preservation in November 1980. It unexpectedly returned to service on the Glasgow City Tour run by Glasgow Corporation Transport Limited between 2003-4. Sold with the Tour business to First Glasgow in March 2004, this bus was numbered PD3, or 39997 in the First national numbering scheme. Finally, it was sold to Glasgow City Council for a return to preservation in 2006
Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust (GVVT) Open Day 2012
The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust (GVVT) was formed at the end of 2002. The primary aim of the Trust is to promote the restoration, preservation and use of historic passenger carrying and commercial vehicles. It also aims to advance education for public benefit by the provision of a working museum for display of such vehicles. Further information on the GVVT can be found at LinkExternal link

Held on Sunday 14 October, the 2012 Open Day was well attended with many visitors taking full advantage of the free vintage bus trip from Riverside Museum to the GVVT premises in Bridgeton.
