I have been passing this coach graveyard for years and each time I mean to stop off and study the decay at closer quarters. Maybe as many as two dozen coaches and buses stand parked on this old garage lot, as if hoping for one last road trip that never comes. Judging from the registration plates these are mainly 1980's vintage coaches, long since superseded by newer models but redolent of their day and speaking to me of many, many school trips, safari park visits and sweaty sandwiches, sing-songs and nefarious activities at the back of the bus. Great to see such a collection. Great work by the collector concerned. They're in reasonable nick all things considered.
