Pre-order Your Dublin Bus Northcord Hybrid With IRM

Recommended Posts


Our growing bus range has proven very successful, with our two commissions from Britbus of Dublin Bus double deckers in 1:76 scale selling out (or almost out with our latest release!) in record time. Retailing 1:76 vehicles from the Oxford diecast range has also been very successful to help Irish modellers add appropriate vehicles to their layouts and collections. We now continue that theme with a new brand and an all new model of an all new prototype, the Northcord ADL Enviro 400 in Dublin Bus hybrid livery.


This model represents fleet number AH1 (191-D-44403) that has 10.3 metre, dual-door bodywork and was new to Dublin Bus in 2019.

After a 2 year discussion, in 2019, Dublin Bus received 9 trial buses, 3 electric battery assisted Wrights, 3 Volvo Wright hybrids, and 3 Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMCs (AH1-3). All 9 buses are in an attractive yellow and green version of the Dublin Bus livery and feature flowers and leaf patterns on the livery.

Dublin Bus Conyngham Road depot operates the ADL hybrids on busy west Dublin route 25/25A/25B and the model is featured on its route 25B, heading to Adamstown Station. Route 25B runs every 10 minutes and is complimented by ADL Enviro500s operated by sister depot Broadstone to boost passenger capacity. The route starts in the affluent Merrion Square of D2, and travels along the River Liffey ‘Quays’, Heuston Rail Station, Chapolizod bypass, and into Adamstown where its terminus is located at another railway station, ‘Adamstown Station’. AH1 to 3 are the shortest double deckers operating with Dublin Bus and are, body wise, identical to London’s but with the difference being that the wheelchair ramp is at the front door.

The Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC iebus 0007 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square-cornered, patented quick-release windows of the real bus and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the iebus 0007 model is its individual tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.

Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400H MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc. Further additional detail carried by the model include the special sunlight protection shade on the top of the front upper windscreen.

Production of this model is now complete and on its way from the factory to us. We expect to have these models in stock in 4-5 weeks time. You can pre-order yours here for a highly competitive price and our allocation is limited: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/products/adl-enviro400-dublin-bus-191-d-44403

Northcord Enviro 400C Dublin Bus Update!

Hi everyone,

The Northcord Enviro 400C in Dublin Bus livery has arrived in the UK and the first batch of our allocation is on the way to our Dublin warehouse. We expect to begin sending these models out to customers later next week. Keep an eye out for postage tracking information via email!

We have also received fresh stocks of your Oxford diecast favourites, with some brand new models we have not stocked previously, with more on the way too! A couple of our City Swift double deckers have been found in the warehouse and our stock of Asian Bus Localink MCW Metrorider bargains continues to dwindle.
