Subject notes
The bus is one of a batch of ten purchased in August 1919. It is on the Falkirk to Grangemouth service. The bus was owned by a subsidiary of Falkirk Tramways. The petrol engine powered a generator which fed an electric motor. As there was no need to change gear, it gave a smoother ride.
