  1. Now they are in nice condition, well done.
  2. The subject of what to do with it has been a hotly debated topic at the Leyland Scrap Bus and Lorry works (Kent Branch). It was bought purely as a donor vehicle... initially, in fact it seems to have donated some parts already., but as time has passed the rarity value has not been lost on me. The dilemma is one of space, time and money. The chassis (out of shot in the photos) is pretty mangled, but salvageable. My desire is for a 1920s lorry on solids. I have enough solids for four wheels; arranged in the conventional fashion. Plus my chassis is in great order. I could rob this
  3. Growing up I concluded that my mother was not a classic bus enthusiast. Why else would she have got so upset when she overhead my father commenting that he thought the woman down the road had a lovely pair of Bristols.

  7. What was the reason for splitting the brake drum do you think? Is it to aid assembly onto the output shaft or to simplify broaching those deep keyways. Either way it seems a complication that had purpose. Dave
  8. Yes, but the man that never had a ****-cart, or made a mistake never made anything. These jobs are only for the brave... and its looking good. Dave
  9. Are those the steam take-offs for the cylinder in the last photo, Dave. In which case interesting to see they look they are nutted. Or is it something else. Dave
  10. Sounds like it might have been a latrine. The overflow pipe taking the clear run-off. The remainder decomposes like an earth closet. Simple and effective where there are no mains drains. S&F
