The new website has been updated with the reports from Herne Bay and New Romney. You can see them here at http://southerncountiesomnibus.weebly.com/
As stated in the Picture Of The Month, I'm hoping to announce big changes to the collection soon. Some of you many remember when I first started this site back in 2008 as Jake's Buses and was solely about SKL681X and MLK550L, the only two vehicles owned at the time. Later, I met Bernard who had bought TFN980T and inclusion of TFN obviously rendered Jake's Buses obsolete! However, as the website was (even then) getting some good hits I decided to only change the name and the address, hence The Bamford & Sealy Bus Collection having jakesbuses.weebly.com as a web address! Well, things tend not to stand still in the world of bus preservation, and I can say that since owning the buses I've met some truly great like minded people. Bernard, Paul, Andy, Pete and Nick to name a few, all with the same intentions - to preserve or help preserve a bus and keep these lumps of emotional metal rolling. Obviously with the inclusion of Paul's and Nick's buses we could no longer be called The Bamford and Sealy Bus Collection, so after a few months of chatting amongst ourselves we will be renaming the collection The Southern Counties Omnibus Collection complete in an NBC style of presentation. A new website is being designed as I type this, but don't worry, this one won't disappear overnight. Once the new one is complete and has been tested, this one will remain but with links to the new site (which is also a Weebly site and very similar to this one). By coming together, we hope to secure the future of all of our vehicles so that generations on, people can still be riding, photographing, looking at and generally enjoying them still.
I thought I'd slightly change the format of the news pages. Instead of a page of Bristol VR news and a page of DMS news I've decided to combine them all on one new blog. I will make life easier for you and me- we both don't have to keep dashing between pages to follow different buses. The old news pages will remain active.
Another good thing about this is it enables you to post feed back about topics I raise, although I must stress that any swearing, bad taste comments or personal attacks on people will not be tolerated and the post will be deleted. Lets keep in nice and friendly and clean please!
