Notes

This early Dinky Routemaster Bus displays well – with all the nice details not present in the later issues. Complete transfers and labels throughout, this Schweppes Bus looks as if it has rarely been out of its box. Shiny spun wheels, conductor and driver. Ribbed roof (happily free from the usual rubbing).

Fine tread original tyres look as-new.

Couple of negligible marks, that you have to hunt for.
The colourful picture box shows the “SCHWEPPES” version. Bright and complete – it looks great on display with this Routemaster Bus. Only the most minor age wear.
