Car fans are transported

DUNDEE Museum of Transport, the first of its kind in the city, flung open its doors to the public at the weekend attracting young fans like five- year -old Cole Simpson (left).

The organisation was set up to collate the local and surrounding area's rich transport heritage and the museum has already amassed a significant collection in its temporary location at the city's Market Mews.

Since its establishment in 2010, support for the museum has grown significantly, including the announcement last month of a working partnership with National Express Dundee.

Chairman Jimmy McDonnell said: "It has been a long and incredibly busy road for us and we are really excited to bring such a fantastic visitor attraction to Dundee, tapping into the local culture and transport history, not only for Dundee but beyond."
