Oxford Diecast New Routemaster London General - 1:148 Scale

Product Code: NNR001
1 review |
£12.95

In real life, the development of the new Routemaster bus was inspired by the old London Routemaster, unveiled at the Earl's Court Commercial Vehicle Exhibition in September 1954 and which had for over sixty years been an iconic London tourist attraction in itself, its demise causing outrage amongst enthusiasts. However, the new Routemaster incorporates all the modern requirements for city transport. Designed by Wrightbus in Northern Ireland, it is the first bus in over 50 years that has been designed specifically for the streets of London. It is modern, fully accessible, user friendly and uses the latest green technology. During its development and subsequent launch, it earned the affectionate nickname the 'Boris Bus' because of the then Mayor of London - Boris Johnson's determined input into the New Bus for London project.

In design terms, the New Routemaster has three sets of doors and two sets of stairs - one at each end for entry to the top deck. The bus features a lot of lightweight materials including glass, making it light and airy. There is a stepfree gangway on the lower deck and wheelchair bays help disabled people onboard. Environmentally, the bus uses the latest green diesel-electric hybrid technology and is the best performing bus of its kind in the world. London Transport plans to have 1000 in use by the summer of 2017.

Our N scale replica is painted red, white and black and incorporates many of the unique features of the 'real thing'. Its two different advertising panels draw attention to the musical satire 'The Book of Mormon' showing on the West End stage. Registered LTZ 1060, our new Routemaster is heading as the number 11 to Liverpool Street, just like it did in the old days! Lettering and the bus number LT60 is printed in gold to the front of the advertising panels on both sides and the number is also printed in black out of white on the roof.

    I recommend this product

    Beautifully reproduced bus ..........with extra possibilities

    The body of the bus is made of clear plastic with detailed shapes for windows and doors.etc. This is then overprinted with the bus livery, advertisements, lights and labels in intricate detail. There is also a detailed interior with passenger seats and the driver's cab with the staircase linking the two decks. At 3 inches/7.6cm long it is exactly to 1/148 scale and ideal for a modern road or rail layout. I have all the versions produced by Oxford Diecast, except for a special made for the Hong Kong market. Most of them have been motorised using an adapter which forms an interface between the bus body and the motor chasiss. This allows the bus to run on a roadway and stopping briefly at bus stops, and road junctions. https://youtu.be/HMqr2aXu4Ik Delivery from Oxford diecast was very quick with the models securely wrapped in bubble-wrap and then cushioned in a stout cardboard box.
