131 STK 131T is waiting for some front suspension/shock absorber work to be done.
133 STK 133T work continues on her full restoration from top to bottom but progress has been slowed so she wont be ready this year.
141 VJY 141V has reportedly been struck by another bus at Winkleigh I don't have that confirmed she is still intended as a long term restoration project but her future being honest is hanging in the balance
168 TTT 168X has had some minor work done to her front rear view mirrors and her exit door in part preparation for her MOT
170 TTT 170X has had all Riverlink livery lettering and advertising removed today and is about to have 22 seats repaired or replaced over the course of the late summer and winter she will then also gain a cash vault as will other buses that would have originally had them. She awaits some engine and gearbox work before MOT and REPAINT hopefully over the course of the winter.
171 TTT 171X has had some tidying up work such as wheel painting etc done.
105 K105 SFJ has had its seats all replaced/refurbished and is now looking very smart internally a ticket machine is next for this bus
