My thanks to Keith Wood and KH Chui for allowing me to share the above photographs, which feature two former Hong Kong buses. Both participated in yesterday's London Bus Museum Spring Gathering, which was held at Brooklands Museum. Dave Rogers took along his former Citybus Leyland Olympian 152, which, as is always the case with Dave's buses, looked immaculate. Ensignbus exhibited the former Kowloon Motor Bus Wrights StreetDeck, W6S1.

These two photographs, featuring buses at Shek-O Bus Terminus, have just been added to the Shek-O Bus Terminus page in the XTRA section of the site. My thanks to Donald MacRae for allowing me to share the first photograph, which features China Motor Bus Metal Sections bodied Guy Arab LS38 and is believed to have been taken in 1983. The second photograph arrived today and features New World First Bus Leyland Victory Mk2 LV12. The original photographer is unknown and I am guessing it is dated either 1999 or 2000.
