Looking through my pictures from events this year, I stumbled on this picture from the New Romney Rally (below). Now a roofless shell this is the remains of the former East Kent garage at New Romney. Wouldn't this make an excellent place to keep restored buses in? I believe it only held 6 buses. There must be loads of places like this all over the country, sheds, old depots or barns where a virtual fleet of buses could be kept. The reality of the situation is most of these places will be lost to development. Will we be kicking ourselves in future I wonder....?
Bernard gave me the paperwork for Nu the Titan the other day and imagine my confusion when I see on the log book it described as a LEYLAND NATIONAL! Maybe I should organise a whip round and get the DVLA an Ian Allan ABC Bus Spotters book....
I was down at our yard last Thursday pottering about and I've managed to get some stickers done for the backs of all the buses! All the ones that are on the road or will be on the road are now fitted with them and very smart they look too! I've ordered some posters for the insides now of a similar design.
Whilst down there I met up with Andy who has just bought a share in 1178 the Leyland National. Like me, Andy is ex Stagecoach at Thanet and is very keen (we'll soon knock that out of him!!!). If you're interested in a share or just want to know whats what, contact me.
