This old M&D bus (which was mentioned a few posts ago) has moved into to the East Kent garage where 5137, 40301 and 40306 live. Andrew, her owner wanted her to be undercover and felt this was the best option even though she's quite a way from his home. Currently snuggled up with 5137, I've been doing a few bits to her for Andy and we're hoping that come next year she might be out and about - alongside 5137 of course.
Well the 2017 was held on Sunday 7th May and went without a hitch. It was our busiest one to date. A full report can be found BY CLICKING HERE! Many thanks to everyone who attended and all of the vehicle owners who supported us. As soon as I have a figure of the amount raised I will pass this on to you.
Although owned by my friend and fellow SCOC member Bernard, N306XRP rarely sees the light. Plagued by minor niggles, she's normally tucked up inside the garage with my N301XRP. I personally love these Mercs having driven them for years at Stagecoach - although not these two as these were based in United Counties.
Here is a shot of former 40306 outside during the move around to allow PKE809M to move in. I'm hoping to take 40306 over myself one day....
I've had a busy April which has resulted in me working on mostly other people's buses! Not that I mind at all, it's always a pleasure to help others get their pride and joy on the road plus of course by fixing theirs it sometimes leaves you with better experience of issues you have with your own.
PKE809M is and example of this. Now owned by my friend Andrew, she has been suffering the same issues with her hydraulic throttle that her sister PKE807M has. Andrew decided to replace the old piping with flexible hose which I fitted for his a few weeks ago. After seeing how easy it is and how well it works I've decided this is exactly what I want to do with PKE807M too. PKE809M has now moved into to undercover storage in my area too so this will be a vehicle I will no doubt be working on again soon.
I've also been active with Margate's Bus Café, former Crosville WTU487W another Bristol VR.The owners required her to be jacked up and leveled off in their new site on the seafront. This took a few hours but was done with relative ease!
