Both me auld flower, Weren't comfortable and didn't feel very well screwed together. Actual reliability mightn't have been that bad.

Another great piece of work GSI345, would be brilliant to see this as a commissioned model sometime.

Yeah, when it went over a bump, or a ramp, the whole bus would shudder, it felt like the whole thing was held together by one long rod underneath the floor as there was no give in the suspension, and if you sat near the back near where the wheel arches came up, well good luck to you if you were any way tall!

 

All the same, recall when they were first launched on my route and it was something to be proud of that back in the day when things like that seemed to matter and progress seemed real.

 

Myself & Adrian will be at the show in October i will have the models too..
