The Leyland Tiger Cub was a lightweight single decker bus bodied by Saunders-Roe (SARO) of Anglesey. They were produced as 44 seater buses from 1952 and were used widely by transport companies across the country because, being about two tons lighter than the similar Royal Tiger, there was a significant saving on fuel consumption.
This SARO bus comes from Co. Donegal where it was used by the County Donegal Railways. The bright red and cream livery has cream trim and a cream interior. The bus is registered ORR 322 and the destination blind shows it as being the CDR bus on its way to Letterkenny. We see from the contact details printed in white behind the nearside front wheel that Mr B L Curran was Manager and Secretary, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal. The colourful crest on the sides of the bus is that of the County Donegal Railway Joint Committee.
This is an unusual model not only for bus collectors but also for 00 gauge railway enthusiasts where it would prove an interesting lineside accessory in an Irish setting.
