Sunday 18th May was the annual spring running day at SVBM Lathalmond as in previous years the weather stayed dry for most of the day. Unfortunately I was not able to bring any of my Clydeside Scottish vehicles to the event this year, but my Eastern Scottish Volvo Citybus E187 HSF took part in the event.
Although not able to take part in the running day, B509 YAT was out on display. Sunday 18th May 2014.

On Sunday 29th June 2014. The Scottish Branch of the Omnibus Society took a trip on my Eastern Scottish Volvo Citybus E187 HSF to St. Andrews for the afternoon. The weather was not great, but we survived!

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th August 2014
This was the weekend of the annual SVBM two day open day event held at Lathalmond. Three of my four vehicles were able to attend, just Clydeside Scottish Fleetline HSD 73V was missing. The weather was not bad, helped out in the bar and camped over on the Saturday night with a few drinks catching up with friends. A great weekend was had by all and no vehicles stuck in mud!
