News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Going back over the years, we lads in 1935, who lived at the top of Castle Road, used to wait for the Chatham & District bus to come up Castle Road. This, it appeared, was a test area, for a mechanic to test the engine & brakes. The bus duly arrived chugging up the hill, there were about six of us ready to grab the handrail & jump on, for a ride. The mechanic knew this, and as the bus reached Magpie Hall Road, he geared up to a higher speed, and sometimes, we were unable to get off. If this happened we would have to walk back from Huntsman Corner, a half a mile away. This was about 11.am.on school holidays..

I have noticed the cream and brown double decker bus is back in Chatham bus station but without, on the side,  `Chatham Traction `.  Waiting for another ` transfer ` to put on ?
