Nice to see Tom driving a real Routemaster today - and to show him progress on KDZ 5805!

Talking of routemasters, if anyone is in the area local to Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire next July 18th/19th 2015, you may like to call in to visit Woodhall Spa' 1940's weekend where we have a routemaster taking people for rides.
I know that the routemaster was not a wartime bus, but it's the only vintage bus we have attending at the moment.
