I thought Boris wanted to get rid of the bendies, and now they're working the Olympic Shuttle Service! I think he may have gone a bit mad.....
Also, can't wait for TA's at HD. It will be a welcome change from the slightly knackered VP's which currently serve the routes.

The location is called Barton Park,and has nothing to do with Trent Barton ! It is the former Eastleigh Carriage Works,which is now an industrial estate using the original buildings.

The business doing the bus work here is called Hants & Dorset Trim and is owned by the Go-Ahead Group,and they have a paint facility on site linked to the trimshops.
