Just back from the fleabay collection point.

The model I missed from my initial research.

35804 - Series 1 Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton Pointer in Badgerline livery.

One of the later EFE efforts with mirrors.

I think a pretty good level of detail achieved, for the price point they were sold at.

I found a few Badgerline EFEs during the weekend's diecast sorting - possibly ones you already have, but I'll snap them later on and let you see them.

Unboxed and possibly with some minor wear, but if you do want them, they'll be cheap...

Yes I would be interested

Okay, here goes!

IMG_20220111_102531.thumb.jpg.da9c635dc55af145529fb30346a7add5.jpg

Bristol VR, BH5531 and plated as EWS739W. Route 332 to Bristol.

IMG_20220111_102536.thumb.jpg.c96a6798ef42af3c4b3d1c2310a9330c.jpg

Bristol RE, WS1182 and plated YHU502J. Route 126 to Weston.

IMG_20220111_102623.thumb.jpg.5824432f2bbac2decdcc12fe0a1d7030.jpg

Plaxton bodied Mercedes, 3904 and plated L904VHT. Route 2 to Ensleigh.

IMG_20220111_102540.thumb.jpg.98387be9f16e0512d5e4e254f61a68ca.jpg

Another Plaxton Merc, this one wearing Eastern National/ Badgerline colours so not from Somerset/ Avon? - 601, plated as H601OVW, Route 21 to Deanery Gardens.

IMG_20220111_102619.thumb.jpg.6e9fbe0d983768d675adde614e451a23.jpg

And I've also this Crosville Leyland National longbody, which probably isn't anything to do with your current endeavours but is the only other loose EFE I have.

They were bought cheap from a market stall in Belfast last year, and as you can see there are various chips to the paintwork here and there. The Eastern National Merc also seems to be missing the inner portion of a front wheel, oddly, so the tyre doesn't seat properly - though a bead of glue would likely hold it in place.

At any rate, if they interest you they're available at £2 each, or all five posted to you for a tenner!

Happy for @RoadworkUKto have the Eastern National.

I will happily take the others. Tenner PLUS postage for the four. 15 ok?

If so, PM me your payment details.

Thank you.

Two more arrivals in the ever expanding Cookie bus depot.

1 not on my list, but as I have her sisters in Cityline and Badgerline livery, I thought it rude not too.

Stick the list up, then some of us sad foookers can keep an eye out when we've out and about being sad foookers !

Once I get to the very hard to find ones (quite shortly), I will put up the list, so the AS collective can help (hopefully).

Todays new arrival is

26207 - Guy Arab Utility Bus in Bristol Tramways livery.

Why Bristol Tramways were allocated a Guy during the war is beyond me, given Bristol were also making the utility bus. Sure they had a reason. Govt. Allocation probably.

There is one of these in the office at work, decked out in Bristol city f.c. garb. Not sure if it can fall into my pocket though 🤔
