However, the time has come to "mothball" the blog officially. A bit like when a railway line is closed without taking up the tracks, my blog is now mothballed - there will not be updates for the foreseeable future, but I will leave all existing posts up on-line and accessible. One day my blog may re-open, but that day is not today.
I will not leave it without replacement, however.
My photo website is regularly updated at Southern England Bus on Smugmug.
As well as this, I operate the First Hants & Dorset Enthusiast's Website with a lot of help from forum contributors and other sources of information.
I'm also officially launching a flickr website, taking the name of the "Southern England Bus Scene", which should have updates nearly every day. Here I will post shots of topical importance or historical significance. It will not replace my smugmug - my smugmug will be the library or the vault, where the flickr will be the topical news. I hope it will be successful - we will have to see! At least it should be lot easier to keep updated.
Thanks again to all. See you on flickr and smugmug!
