Recent events with a pesky trespassing so called bus enthusiast has highlighted the need that the vehicles need to more secure than they currently are. Also the weather does cause a few issues, probably not as much as you would think but undercover is still obviously better than outside.
So with all this in mind, occasionally I do have a flick through the local buildings for sale or for rent. Sale is better than rent in this case. Moving everything is a huge logistical nightmare so you wouldn't want to move somewhere then have the tenancy agreement terminated after a year or two as the landlord had sold to developers... Which highlights yet another issue. Greedy property developers are hoovering up land left right and centre. Obviously landowners when offered millions for a spot of land are going to accept, despite the fact that they've got you and your buses as a sub tenant. So to be secure the land would have to be purchased. Somewhere I own to put the buses on. This again comes with all sorts of issues such as getting a morgage, business rates and maintenance of the property. One day it will happen. But it's a long way off so just keep playing those lottery numbers!
As I said above, I occasionally have a look through the property available and this came up. You might have to copy and paste it to work :
This is the old New Romney bus garage situated opposite the light railway station. Whilst rather unsuitable for my requirements, it would have made a great building for a smaller collection. However, check out that over £200,000 price! The difference that planning permission on a site makes can be several zeros!
