He has been collecting as long as he can remember and whenever he feels like thinning out his collection, we are treated to some wonderful items for the website!

The first we have ever offered for sale. This pre 1938 issue Single Deck London Transport Bus is finished in deep red and stone, with complete ‘LONDON TRANSPORT’ transfers on both sides, and a working clockwork motor. Endearing ‘BISTO’ transfer at the rear of the bus is virtually complete too. Shiny wheels. The white tyres are originals but unsurprisingly are mis-shapen now.



Some tarnishing to the radiator and a small ‘crazed’ area on the roof. Rough paint area at the lower rear edge. Complete ‘DORKING’ destination transfer and ‘AYV 604’ registration numbers.
