6. 747EUS
747EUS has already been featured on SCT61 but in Ribble livery. As is well known, it was operated by Glasgow for a year from February 1962 and then Edinburgh, though subsequently neither city ordered any Lowlanders. Eventually being bought by Bamber Bridge Motor Service and hence to Ribble, it is pictured here in probably its third livery.
