Interesting point made about Busworld, but maybe you should get your facts right on this.!!!
A third party, supposidly acting on behalf of the KTM purchased two buses from Busworld in the name of the KTM. They only paid half the purchase cost of each bus and tried to get them out of there and sell them on to Michael for more than was paid for them. Alas, both vehicles were unable to be moved quickly and got trapped when the collection moved to Beith.
With still the cost of these buses outstanding and outstanding rent building up, Roulston tried to get in touch with the original party but it seemed this person had dissapeared. Someone in Glasgow, whom knew i knew the KTM got Roulston to get in touch with me and i put him in touch with Michael.
The end story here was Michael never knew two buses were involved in this deal, Michael paid the other party for one bus, but this other party used the money to split the cost between two buses and tried to pull a fast one on both Michael & Roulston.

You mean way that KD156 was brush painted when it attended Bangor and then its engine blew up on the road home? And hasnt been seen again? Or the way a bus appears at a rally is never seen again as it ends up crashed and wrecked? Or the rent isnt paid on the storage site?
As was mentioned before, those who know anything about the movement have no time for Kells, ask TMSI, Cavan and Leitrim, TEC, Busword in Glasgow etc and they will all say the same thing. Stay away from Kells, they are loose cannons and have done nothing but harm to the hobby.
By the way youtube is a good place to put 711s proof up. Hope you dont make a mess of it like 694. I believe sparks fly out of it now when they try to start it.
It seems to me that this person is an ex 'Kells man' ho tried to play Grimes at his own game.
Just because someone may have attempted to swindle Grimes doesnt mean he isnt the lowlife I claim him to be. Any buses Im aware of that didnt have the rent paid are in Ireland. Have you never noticed some of the museums 'exhibits' are not accounted for? Most of them have been scrapped in leiu of rent by landlords.
This man has a lot to answer for.

Well you may be in for one hell of a big surprise at the end of April to mid May then - watch this space.
No, the person was not ex Kells as far as i'm aware.
Well I know he was, infact he was once second in command, but then again you possibly wouldnt know that since you only appeared on the scene a few years ago.
Lets just say the individual in question would have similar social standing to you and phsyically looks similar.
Here is a little test for the museum. Please put up a picture of PL12 within one week with a copy of either the Irish Times/Independant on the windscreen showing the date of the photo.
Do this and ill support the museum without question!
I wont hold my breath.
PL 12 & 51, no problem at all sir, ill be glad to show you a photo, small problem is that she is parked inwards in the lower yard, would say a rear photo suffice??
Mr Allen, by the way any chance of an email address? were wondering what lovely man knows so much about all of us, especially what underwear Michael is wearing, but yet posts no email address, i have a very good idea who it is and the connections are with a PL not to far after PL12!
Happy St Patricks Day from New Zealand
PL12 never collected by KTM at any stage... it disappeared in late 2002, has never been seen since
