This year I hope to get to more shows than last year. As said elsewhere on this blog, 2017 was cut short by the company I worked for failing which obviously affected the old cash flow somewhat...!
Fortunately I managed to find a replacement job pretty quickly but coming halfway through the show season was a little bit annoying to say the least. MFN41R managed to make her debut at the Quex Park show near Birchington where she proved herself very well as a camper bus for the whole family. This has prompted me to start fully converting her to accomodation this year. Obviously I'm aware of her historical significance so this will be done very sympathetically. I know a few people would love to see her returned to being a bus but to be honest, I have 3 other VRs that are buses and with the type of shows I attend with my family MFN will be used a lot more. Externally, for now , my good lady is very fond of the silver and blue which is in good condition. Long term she will be put back into East Kent colours though. As much as I poppy red I'm itching to put a 'Beddy Buys' advert on her so she may well end up matching TFN890T.
PKE809M should be making her debut this year at the Deal Motor Show on 26th May on shuttle buses. I won't be taxing her too much as this will be her first run but I hope she'll do a couple of circuits 'in service.'
As for 40301, I'm aiming to get her to Hastings on Sunday 20th May as well as various other shows in the season.
Look out for them at various shows and events in Kent this year, if you spot me, pop over and say hello.
