Vehicle Information:

Volvo B10BLE SF51 YAD was new to First Glasgow as SV633 in November 2001.  Allocated to Parkhead Depot, it was used on routes 40,54,61 and 62 around the City. It was one of a big batch of single deckers brought in to help displace some of the other low-floors onto other routes within the city operated by the various type of Volvo and Scania lowfloors. It operated on the branded 62 between Baillieston and Faifley mainly, a 24/7 service at the time.

In 2002 it transferred to Knightswood Depot for the 62 as Parkhead did not have the staff to operate the route. It would later return to Parkhead.

Later on in life it moved to Blantyre to replace the Darts being operated on mainstream services such as the 240 and 267.
