Just a reminder that today, our sister site has been updated with news on 3131, 7681, 5137 and 5807. Also a new YouTube video has been added, a link to which is below.
Today we attended the excellent Herne Bay Bus Rally in the town's William Street car park. There was a great selection of vehicles and the turn out was really good - including the weather too! We took along 3131 which filled in on a few of the runs around the town and then up to Tankerton. She proved very popular and most runs she was pretty full up. Nick Moore was also there in 1145 on static display, however, he did do a photographic run to the seafront so some pictures of 1145 and the famous clocktower could be taken.
Following on from the conversation about The Italian Job film, here is the same film with a more appropriate soundtrack! I know this was used at the beginning of the original film and not the end when the coach goes over the edge, (sorry if I've spoiled the ending for anyone!) so we've swapped a Lamborghini Miura for a Bristol LH and 'Big William' is played by Andy Watkins.
This was filmed coming back from Hastings Bus Rally yesterday as Andy drove 3131 back through the East Sussex countryside.
The report for this fantastic weekend is now up on line. You can read it HERE. 3131 ran very well over the two day event and proved to be very economical with the fuel. Don't forget, 3131 will be attending the Hastings Bus Rally at The Oval, Hastings this Sunday (20th May).
Western National 3131 has now been taxed and is ready for the road. Her first run out was due to have been with Channel Paranormal on Saturday night (28/04/12) but this was cancelled due to the bad weather.
No really a video OF the coach but more of a video FROM the coach. This was filmed from the back window of 3131 as she headed to Wood's of Aylesham for a project by her owner, Bernard.
Bristol LH coach 3131 was serviced at Eclipse today also having the MOT faults ironed out too. Here are some pictures on her return to Sandwich, which although only taken at 1800hrs, have a real night feel to them.
Bernard's Bristol LH coach is off to Eclipse next week to have the MOT faults ironed out and receive a service ready for the season.
