On arrival of new Scania low floor 2430, Tiger 400 was re-registered KEZ 3555.

400 remained in service at Magherafelt all its working days until withdrawal on the 31st January 2008.


Tiger 1000 was new to Craigavon on the 26th September 1986. It remained at Craigavon until the 21st January 2008 when it transferred to Newtownards where it stayed until withdrawal on the 29th February 2008.
