More classic vehicles including a Bennett's Dairy Worcester milk float. Note too that 3795 is still on site, under cover and basically in tact except for removal of nearside upper deck windows, engine and gearbox when used as a static commentary box.

I was looking at 3795 when I was up there a few weeks ago and I think it has become part of the structure of the building now as it appears to be leaning against the steel support and holding it up!

It would be nice to see it in an open location to get some clear photographs of the whole vehicle (and HA3501 parked next to it), but I imagine it would take hours of work to move it so that is unlikely to happen.

The D5B and the S will hopefully be moving out of the Scania Hall at the end of this operating season (along with all the other vehicles) to permit re-roofing and insulation of the side walls (provided the pennies keep rolling in). Quite where we are going to store this lot for the duration.......but at least you will be able to see 3795 in all its glory......
