Trust me, I've been there, under cover, with five layers of clothing and still shivering!
None of which has much to do with this blog, just that I remember the device fondly from being in Scotland in the 2005 winter working on another Sydney Albion, no. 1877. http://www.albioncx19project.org.uk/
Undercover spaces for a double decker are impossible to come by or just horrendously expensive (try £50 per week!)
A break in the feverish pace of restoration has been called, and work will resume in February.
For now the new roof is weatherproof, the bus is fully mobile, the interior is clear and freshly painted and awaiting installation of galley (units already built but removed to allow freer access to mechanicals).
New steel-framed double bunks are being made for upstairs: 6 units to sleep 12.
Also nothing to do with this blog, this old photo sent to me by an old friend, also an Albion nut:
Sydney bus museum.
When no. 1613 was brand new in 1939, it looked like this, before the ravages of 20 years' hard work.
More news as it comes to hand.
