Blue Lights at the River­side

Evening Times - - NEWS -

LUCKY Craig­ton Pri­mary pupils were the first to get up close to an NYPD cop car ahead of the launch of the Blue Light Fes­ti­val.

The event re­turns this week­end to the River­side Mu­seum as an im­pres­sive ar­ray of emer­gency ve­hi­cles are on dis­play for vis­i­tors.

There will also be ac­tiv­i­ties, arts and crafts and a range of street food vans onSatur­day and Sun­day, from 11am.

The NYPD po­lice car will be a spe­cial high­light of this year’s event, along­side a col­lec­tion of over 60 dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing bikes, cars, trucks, en­gines and boats.

Also on show will be an ex­ten­sive range of vin­tage ve­hi­cles from River­side Mu­seum.

Glas­gow Mu­se­ums fire en­gine col­lec­tion is the sec­ond largest in Scot­land and in­cludes a 1928 Al­bion-Mer­ry­weather Pump Lad­der, whose cha­sis was built in Al­bion Mo­tors, Glas­gow, and a 1940 Den­nis-Mer­ry­weather Turntable Lad­der that was sta­tioned at Go­van fire sta­tion dur­ing the Sec­ond World War and a Ley­land Fire­mas­ter Pump Es­cape.
