Here we are returning after a successful day of checking vehicles pre MOTMinistry of Transport test.

 

The vehicles have not really moved since November last year, so 1318Royal Blue; BDV 318L | Bristol LH | Fleet No. 1318 | CBPG decided she didn't want to start. After a fresh set of batteries, lots of choice language, nearly burning out the starter motor and 10 minutes of turning over she did go. It is fairly typical for 1318 (and most LHs I believe to sometimes turn over for a bit when cold, but today she was particularly stunning! 14601969 Bristol RELH6G with ECW C45F coachwork; New to Southern National March 1969, transferred to Western National, remained in service until May 1981 when became part of BaMMOTT collection at Wythall. Purchased by WHOTT May 2005 OTA 632G | Bristol RELH | Fleet No. 1460 went on first turn after using the jump pack and 52529529 became 52529 in national numbering system, fitted with 27 seats and soon received her current livery; S529 RWP | Mercedes Vario | Fleet No. 52529 | CBPG started first time after reconnecting the batteries.

 

The vehicles were inspected by Steve to check for items required to pass MOT. Unfortunately we have a few bits to do on a couple of them before we present them for test, but no major faults so all is good. After the first issue this morning the vehicles have run really well all day. Think we need to plan in some extra days during the winter this year just to take them out.

 

Our dart 401Badgers and Flags Pointer Dart L401 VCV | Dennis Pointer Dart | Fleet No. 401 | CBPG also go to go out today for an inspection and is ready for MOT with one minor job to do requiring a part. 401 is kept at a different farm so it's not pictured.
