|The Southern Counties Omnibus Collection||
Following a rather busy house move for one of our key members, things have gone a little quiet as of late with Nuw's MOT now having expired too. The date for the move was the same as the Preston Steam Rally which meant we were unable to attend this event. We also didn't attend the Dover Transport Museum Rally. As it is rather undesirable to have MOTs in the middle of the season, 5137 will be tested towards the end of August and Nuw shortly afterwards. Early next year we're hoping to be in a position to test 1178, 1145, 1255, DMS550 and maybe even 7980. We shall keep you updated on the work involved.
If all goes to plan, next week former East Kent 7656 will be joining the collection. As previously stated, she will be used as a store shed and spares bank having previously been used by MOD Manston as a fire evacuation unit. A page will be added to the site in good time but there are no plans to restore or return this 1980 Bristol VRT to the road. Her interior will help return 7041 to a bus again.
Here you will find out the latest news about our buses and future events we hope to attend. In addition we will add any interesting bus and coach related news we come across.
