This was a split destination release, one carries cork the other carries galway on destination boards. As kevin and northman have already suggested they are quite hard to find. They were a limited run, off the top off my head i think it was 1500 pieces. They pop up from time to time on ebay. The last one i got was last month and i got it for 20 pound sterling which was a bargain. I have seen them go for a lot more.

Wow this is my first venture into the bus world in this forum and I did not realise the stir I created when I said I got one ebay for £20.

I did get one, a Corgi Bus Eireann, Cork but not the right one.

 

Sorry to disappoint everyone but it was a Corgi OOC 42703 Van Hool Alizee Bus which meets my needs for my Clonmel based Station.

 

So no you did not miss a bargain -I think I'll stay from this bus world in the future, I'm all for peace and calm at my stage of life.

Bloody Hell Kieran that was a bit of luck. They are like Hens teeth to find. Well done you :tumbsup:
I thought you had sold your soul to the ebay devil to get that but the Van Hool Alizee Bus is probably more in keeping for your layout which is looking great by the way :cheers:
