Work is continuing to restructure the News section of the site which has resulted in several images not being visible and links to the News 'grid' page being broken. Hopefully these issues won't cause too much of an issue and hopefully will be rectified shortly

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

I can confirm that whilst my web hosting company has upgraded my account, allocating me 10GB of space on a new server, they have not uploaded the site to this new server!
 
As a result I am having to do this manually, which is likely to take most of Friday - my apologies for lots of missing pages and images in the meantime.
6th November 2015

   



The first news reported on 5th November 1998 :-

'The Capital Citybus Olympian (
43214) has now been released and appeared in shops on 5/6th November.The model is on general release, and was produced in a quantity of 6,900'
   

   
   
And the bad news..... in attempting to upload photographs tonight of KMB Trident ATR1, my web hosting company tells me
that I have used 99.95% of my allocated webspace - looks like I shall be looking for new web hosting company!
 
An upgrade giving me 5 times more webspace is imminent, however the site is likely to be 'down'
for 2-3 hours whilst this takes place. Further details will be posted on the site's Facebook page.
