We don’t leave the depot much at this time of year but there’s plenty going on. Two buses currently receiving attention are open top VR 1995 and Burlingham PD2 1467. The former has been repanelled externally which has also required some rotten wood filler strips to be replaced. This phase of the work is almost complete and will be followed by replacement of part of the upper deck floor.
1467 is receiving a full restoration of course. Recently all the ceiling and cove panels were stripped and primed and are now being fitted downstairs. Once all are in place beading strips will be added and then painted in the appropriate cream. External repanelling is almost complete. We hope to start on the mechanical work shortly.
