East Kent Leyland National EFN178L has arrived back with some old friends at her new undercover accommodation which is under the care of Friends Of The East Kent. 1178 of course used to be owned by the Friends many years ago so it's nice that she has returned to them so we can continue her restoration. We're still hoping that she'll be ready for next year 2014 but we're not rushing her. We'd rather do it properly and take a little longer if needed!
As work continues on the other buses at some pace, Bernard has decided that now is the time to move 1178 undercover so that her restoration can be completed for next year. We have decided to remove the complete windscreen so the whole front end can be sorted out. Also this will give us chance to remove the wheelchair door and install the emergency window again. She will also have a service too.
