Re: TFL Paddington lunchtime 20 Aug. 2019

Chinese State owned Weichai Engineering have allegedly made a bid for Wrightbus according to this article in the Business section of The Daily Telegraph today. It seems to be the trend in the UK transport sector - nationalisation by overseas government run industries!
