Pictured here in 1955 (courtesy of the late Neil Gordon’s book) is the Chieftain bus at Stoneymeadow Road at the Dalton Junction.
The bus is heading towards Blantyre. Laurie of Hamilton , the proprietors of the Chieftain Buses, ran a service from Hamilton, along High Blantyre Road, Burnbank, Main Street, High Blantyre and up to Stoneymeadow Road, up to East Kilbride Village and Hairmyres.
Avril Laurie messaged me saying, “Thanks so much Paul for your post of the chieftains. My husbands grandfather owned the chieftains and the family of brothers drove the chieftains and his dad also very nice to see Paul brings back good memories for the family”
