Plenty of activity ahead of our big day at Morecambe on May 24th – see events for details. Leopard 811 is receiving attention to a defective brake foot valve, 1161 continues to have its brakes adjusted while 1481 has received a replacement tyre at the rear due to a slow puncture. Atlantean 1397 has been moved into a paint shop ready for a full external repaint in NBC livery. It’s a big job cleaning every panel on a double decker and ensuring there is no old, loose paint. Very necessary though to ensure a quality paint job.
Finally, the remains of Leopard 1117 were taken from the site on a low loader to a recycling company.
