We had yet another hectic day with DVD orders, the printer played up for a while then decided it would work after all. We'll have our Thursday pub night as usual albeit at home. Mandy made a favourite dinner we haven't had for years as it might be the only chance to do cooking while Mandy is marooned at home, at least I can go filming. Tomorrow looks like Birmingham. Things can change through. Here are some shots from Wakefield yesterday.
The work started on the house fascia late this morning when the worst of the rain was over. They found that the original cladding was on a hard wood base not at all damaged and the replacement would just be softwood so we agreed that leaving the original added to the insulation and would be best left alone. Time thus saved they are about two thirds of the way through and it looks quite stunning.
I've started work on the marathon DVD covering the existing municipal public transport operators in the pre NBC/PTE era. There will be around a minute of each, there were over 90 though. As well as buses there could be trolleys, trams etc . I'll use scanned cine where I have it or then resort back to our telecine copies for the remainder. Roy Marshall did a bit of a tour de force on these lines which will come in handy. The only area I can't get to grips with is South Wales , there aren't even a lot of photos on the net to help me identify the operator.
