Leyton garage in East London is a fascinating location. Not only is it an operating garage, the building also doubles as a mini-works for refurbishing Stagecoach Londons buses. We were allowed unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to film the work in progress. Along the way we picked up a huge amount of detail, much of which has been incorporated in the programme's informative script. Needless to say, the pictures are revealing too, and will provide you with a complete understanding of how this unique facility functions.
The programme sections:
~ General operation of the garage
~ Painting buses in the purpose-built spray booth
~ Upholstery repairs and seat replacement
~ MOT preparation, including a new upper deck windscreen for one of the Scanias
~ Body repairs
~ The Centenary Open Day 2012, with multiple Number Ones from RT1 to LT1
~ The a cab ride on Leytons route 55, running from the garage to Oxford Circus in the heart of London. We paste together the really interesting sections of the route and mix them with roadside shots and cut-aways. Needless to say, we pass numerous buses on the way
~ Leyton's routes - A roadside view of all seven of the garages double-deck services
This DVD is a ground-breaking insight into one of the London bus scenes most interesting locations . . . which you must not miss!
