At HQ Andy & Jake gave the buses a few laps around the yard, including our store shed 5807. We like to give all our buses a few laps when possible just to keep them in good running order and everything moving freely. Even yard bound buses like 5807 and 7041.
At the West Kent base, NPD and Q have had a few minor jobs done by Nick & Paul. This included fixing a saggy door which would not close under its own power, this was rectified along with the power steering being topped up on NPD which was causing a whining noise. Q was moved to allow rubbing down of the higher panels to start, but the water feed to the engine was broken, fortunately it was noticed in time before it caused a lot of damage. it was found to be caused by a simple Jubilee clip snapping, this was replaced and refilled.
