Model Bus Federation, Worksop, 20/01/18

Recommended Posts

Don't let the organising title fool you, it wasn't all model buses!! In fact the model bus displays were outnumbered by model tramways and model railways!!

I went there to help Mark Casson out on his 'Grime Street' layout as it was it's last day with him or it went to its new owner in Southampton the day after.
Apart from Grime Street, I photographed Brian Abell's 'Valhalla Tramway Experience' and Stephen Read's 'Sandy Shore' bus display.

Even my rail-mounted Corgi London Transport RT bus had a farewell run along Grime Street!

Large-scale model of Electroline experimental trolleybus built by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive from a Dennis Dominator in 1985 and killed off by bus deregulation in 1986, the actual bue still operates at the Trolleybus Museum @ Sandtoft.
