    Ooh you stuck a long pod on it... any chance of doing a short pod Steve? The short Nationals PMT had were all swapped for short pods so they could pass under Glebe Street bridge with about 25mm clearance above the pod to spare, only a long National with a long pod would clear the bridge as the front wheels when hitting the road camber climbing out onto the canal bridge in front would allow the back end of the bus to sweep down under and thus clear the bridge with a gnats whisker. Dundee knows what I'm on about as Glebe Street was notorious for decapitating deckers.

    Yes I have both - that pod isn't fixed. The Watford Wide service busses didn't use them initially. It'll be an option on the kit.

    What’s the plan for wipers and side indicators (and/or the “pay on entry” light.)

    Wipers are 3d printed and indicators are part of the moulding. You'll see the outcome of this tomorrow night/Saturday.

    Of course I have a full time job too (Well for five weeks). Night Shift at Royal Mail. Great fun as you don't get a Monday morning :scratchchin:, but then you don't get a Friday night either which can play havoc if you have an exhibition on a Saturday :facepalm:. Yesterday was no exception, finished shift at 06.00, and drove straight to Reading getting there just as the traders where being allowed in. Thankfully the show shut at 16.00 and I was away in the car 30 mins later. Total amount of time spent working: 16 hours. Time spent travelling 3 hours and about an hour's break in total.

    Good day though - worth going :thumbs:.

    Fairly split between all lines which is good going forward.
