Well the last of our fleet buses are having their final 'spring cleans' before the main private hire season kicks off. Over the winter numerous vehicles have had floors varnished, wheels painted etc. One vehicle that has had more done is RM25 which has been stripped down to start the gradual retro look by losing the yellow poles, repainting the platform area and then being retrimmed in old style RM moquette (although it will re-enter service in blue/grey as we are still awaiting delivery of the last of the moquette!).
Other jobs we have been on is replacing the engine on the Leeds PD, which sadly suffered a partial seizure but a reconditioning of the original has taken place and is due to be road tested next week.
RT8 spent a fortnight in Hull, which is why it didn't join the RT75 celebrations. It was there for filming for a forthcoming movie. The BBC covered the transformation of Hulls streets to wartime London with some footgae of 8 poodling about here
Lastly we did a major 'refreshing' on RTW467 which entered service back on RT75 22's looking splendid. So all in all a busy period, and with more tube strikes threatened for next week and the week after we are busy preparing many of them to go out and help Londoners get to work or out and about.
Cheers for now
