On the buses

I finally obtained a 1939 Leyland Tiger TS8* single deck bus in green MMTB colours, to compliment and retro date the Victoria Street timeline a few years. I do have in my stable a 1975 Leyland National 10.3* typical of the decade in 'citrus orange' that did limited the layout to the mid 70's to 80's.

Victoria Street circa 1957

Now for a bit of theatre, then and the models
