This release of the Leyland Royal Tiger carries the proud Irish livery of the recently defunct Lough Swilly Bus Company. The company started originally as the Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway Company in the 1850s and ventured into bus and road freight transport in 1929. The last railway line closed in 1953 but the successful bus service side of the operation continued until it went into liquidation in April 2014 following a High Court action against Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. Historically the company had been the last Victorian railway company to survive as a commercial transport enterprise into the 21st Century.
The coach was manufactured between 1950-1954 with an underfloor engine on a heavyweight single deck bus or coach chassis. It was used by many of the major bus companies, several of which we have modelled in this 1:76 scale series. Our latest addition in its Lough Swilly livery has a destination board of Malin Head and is registered ECK 159. Decorated in grey with red roof and trim, the interior is brown with red seating and the chassis black. The bus company logo features on both sides and the Leyland Royal Tiger badge is located in its customary central position below the windscreen.
