On the buses

Model Rail (UK) - - Layout Addison Park -

Phill’s bus garage is an­other fea­ture that cap­tures the essence of 1950s Lon­don Trans­port. The build­ing, based on the of­fice and can­teen build­ing at Leather­head, plays host to some sig­nif­i­cant ve­hi­cles: Pi­o­neer Routemas­ter RM1 is on its tour of LT bus de­pots as the ‘bus of the fu­ture’ and is be­ing in­spected by lo­cal driv­ers and con­duc­tors. Along­side, is one of the new AEC Regal IV RFW tour­ing coaches in green and cream liv­ery, with a stan­dard red RF be­hind. And to com­plete the line-up at the garage is a Regal IV Bri­tish Euro­pean Air­ways coach in its at­trac­tive blue and grey fin­ish. Phill scratch­built the lat­ter, built his RFS from Brynkits prod­ucts and RM1 is a mod­i­fied Les­ney Match­box model.
