For today's photo special we are travelling back to Stamford in 2006 to take a look at a selection of vehicles operated in the area by Delaine and Kimes eight years ago, the former - Delaine are of course still going strong with their modern fleet of traditionally liveried single and double deckers, whilst at the other end of the spectrum Kimes is no longer trading having been absorbed by Centrebus last year - all of the photographs in this post have been kindly supplied by David Bell.
