The piles of soil gone and ground levelled off. Expect the building will start going up soon.
Steel frame of new building looks done. Guess there may be as many as 6 or 7 workshop bays?

541 back axle (Diff??) is sounding like a right bag of nails. Guess it will be a workshop job soon?

It was still going today on the 585.

Meanwhile, 568 has been repainted so the faded paint is no more! (List of buses which haven't been painted yet is on the Usual Allocations Spreadsheet)

568 - https://www.facebook.com/CovBusPage/photos/a.416425641862708.1073741968.369276339910972/738470499658219/?type=3&theater
