The Bedford CALZ mini bus BHO 543C is now fully restored. A suitable set of seats has been installed and everything completed. A full repaint into King Alfred coach livery of eau-de-nil and dark green has been carried out. The vehicle first featured at our participation in Heritage Open Days on 14th September 2019 and again at subsequent events..
Despite the effects of lockdown, our programme of maintenance and MoTs continues so that all our usable vehicles remain available to attend events whenever the opportunity arises.
Work is proceeding apace on our long-term project to restore a 'highbridge' Leyland Titan, a very characteristic vehicle of many fleets in the 1940s and 1950s including King Alfred. It was recently possible to secure the 'cherished' registration HOR 811 for this vehicle, by which it will in future be known. Much of the bodywork is now complete but many more tasks remain to be done, including constructing a set of seats around the bare seat frames!
