ONE of the vehicles promoting Scarborough Engineering Week is the 82-year-old Leyland Tiger which was restored by Bluebird apprentices.

It will take part in London Lord Mayor’s Parade, thanks to tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire. Whitby steam bus Elizabeth will also join the Tiger at the show on November 12.

Janet Deacon, area director for Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “The Bluebird bus and the commitment and dedication which has gone into its restoration is an example of what makes Yorkshire great.

“I am delighted it is representing Yorkshire at such a prestigious event.”

and I feel sure it will be a real crowd-pleaser on the streets of London.

“Welcome to Yorkshire continues to work hard to attract new visitors to the area and attending major events such as this Lord Mayor’s Parade provides the perfect platform from which to promote our beautiful region, the event is expected to attract around 500,000 people lining the route of the parade and over three million are expected to watch the show live on BBC.”
