A non-Ribble project which has been on-going for some time is Morecambe & Heysham AEC Regent 111 no.72. This Park Royal bodied bus was exhibited at the 1950 Commercial Motor Show and has several features in common with RTs. Good progress has been made over the past year and the interior is now being fitted out including applying rexine to the side panels.

Ribble 1481, an ECW AN68 is undergoing major refurbishment. Principal tasks are repairing corrosion around the rear end and replacing most of the lower deck flooring which had started to rot. The work is expected to be completed in time for the new ‘season’.  Meanwhile PD2 1467 continues to get redder.
