Sorry for inaccuracies, this is a forward of the original post from Scotlandbus, containing correct times and numbers:

Hello All.

Now that we have a plan, we would like to invite people with an interest to join us for a grand Glasgow Corporation day on Saturday the 11th of October. As i am sure you are aware, six Glasgow Corpy buses finely restored to 1960s standards will be gathered in the city and we wish to use this opportunity to bring the vehicles together, enjoy them and show them off. The three vehicles based at the GVVT, L446, A350 and LA320 will be joined by three guests from various locations. This is a one off opportunity given the distances involved and should not be missed!

Our Guests... D258 and L405 making the trip from Southampton and everyones old faithful friend, LA1 will be coming out from the Museums Resource Centre at South Nitshill.

Although we have six buses, unfortunately, LA1 is not allowed to take passengers due to insurance restrictions. The other five are prepped and ready for you to experience. To note the significance, D258, L405, A350 and LA320 have not carried passengers for well over a decade.

The plan, approx, is as follows:

Meet at Bridgeton Garage no later than 0945.
Depart BBG 1000.
Clyde Street 1040.
Flashmob of George Square approx 1045.
Approx 1100 Battlefield Rest.
Shawlands Cross approx 1115.
Clyde Tunnel approx 1130.
Lunch in Scotstoun.
Knightswood ex Garage approx 1400.
Byres Road en route approx 1430.
Gathering at the Riverside Museum at 1500.
Dep Riverside approx 1600.

We will then have a long convoy through the city to Gartcraig for the final leg returning to BBG approx 1700.

Please do remember, the timings are approximate. There may be elements out with our control that delay or alter the timings such as traffic conditions.
