About the collection.
This site first started back in 2008 as 'The East Kent 7681 and DMS550 Homepage', and since then has grown into one of the most popular local transport websites around. I'm currently the owner of 6 buses and 4 London style taxis. All but one of the buses are of the double decker Bristol VR type whilst the remaining one is a Mercedes minibus.
If my buses aren't out and about at local show then normally one of my taxis are. I have great fun taking them out but prefer the country show and steam fairs to the typical car or bus rally.
Several of my buses are preserved as exhibition units. Most people are keen to see them return to their previous use all fitted out with seats, however, the space inside them is amazing and for the longer weekend shows they're fantastic living spaces.
Originally my first bus was restored in it's first livery of NBC Red. Whilst this looks nice, I'm not adverse to restoring them in 'house' or 'might have been' liveries.
When you're out and about in the southeast keep a look out for members of the fleet. You never know where they will pop up next and of course being buses, they're designed to be used. If you do happen to see us ut and about, don't be afraid to come over for a chat. Providing we're not too busy we'll gladly show you round the bus.
