1950s buses

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm no expert on buses, so I seek guidance.

Current layout in preparation involves a rural location mid fifties to mid sixties. So a double decker with "Drimnagh" or "46A" on the destination blind won't cut the mustard!

The old half-cab single deckers in rural areas - were they P class? - where would I get two 00 scale models of these, one in CIE green and one in red and cream; also an E class as seen in late 1960s in rural locations?

I have an unmade Jim Poots kit for a P class that I bought to operate the Cavan to Sligo service when I was planning to model Arigna station on the C&L. As I am now building Mohill, which was bus-less in the 1950's, I am sure a transfer to Dugort Harbour could be negotiated.

Jim Poots did an E class but I have no idea if he has any intention of a re-run at some point. I would certainly be in the market for a couple of Es also
