Our Stagecoach era Trident has been named Douglas Bailey MBE in memory of our late friend and colleague. Douglas spent his career in the public transport industry including many years with Ribble and Stagecoach.

18139 was refurbished and repainted during the lockdown so only recently has it been possible to carrying out the naming ceremony which took place at our members day in August. Douglas’s widow Helen and RVPT Chairman Malcolm Smith unveiled a plaque in the lower saloon with friends and family in attendance. Th bus will be a fitting tribute to Douglas and a reminder of his contribution to our group and public transport in general.
