In addition to 1467 work has continues on Royal Tiger 377 and lowbridge PD2 1349. 377’s back end had to be totally rebuilt and the final stage of the work has been completed with the fitting of the emergency door handle. Most windows are now in place and the remainder will be fitted shortly. With most of the lino in place floor strips have been fitted down the central gangway. When the bus was rebuilt for the Leonard Cheshire Home the interior front panel was replaced by a very different design. Fortunately we have been able to retrieve an original from donor bus 386 which will be fitted once it has been repaired.
The work on 1349 has concentrated on the windows and external beading. The offside is now completed and the remaining nearside windows will be in place shortly. A roll of lino in the traditional 1950s plain brown has been purchased.
