On a Clear Day (2005, Peter Mullan, Brenda Blethyn, Sean McGinley)


Patchy movie about a laid-off Glasgow shipbuilder who trains to swim the English Channel. It also has Brenda Blethyn training to be a Glasgow bus driver. There are good shots of former London AEC Routemasters: First Glasgow 39286, formerly RML2486, (JJD486D) plays a major part:
Blethyn's character is seen training in a First Glasgow Alexander-bodied Leyland Tiger driver trainer:
....but she's also seen climbing from the cab of 39623 (RML2623, NML623E):
Congratulations!
This is Glasgow-liveried 39365 (RML2635, JJD365D):
Also seen are a Leyland Olympian/Alexander and two Volvo Ailsa/Alexander, one of which is 31363 (KGG127Y):
....and a glimpse inside a mostly empty garage reveals several preserved Glasgow Corporation vehicles, including AR292 (BUS181), a 1938 AEC Regent tow truck conversion:
Arriva buses are seen as well, but the only close view is of 1421 (P811DBS), an Alexander-bodied Dennis Dart SLF
