Barton of Nottingham is another favourite amongst bus collectors with their familiar maroon, red and cream colour scheme and Barton flag and legendary Robin Hood logo decorating the sides of their vehicles. Here, this well-known company is remembered on Oxford’s latest Weymann Fanfare AEC single deck coach, registered SNN 609. Barton was a bus company that operated in Nottinghamshire between 1908 and 1989. The company founder Thomas Henry Barton used a Durham Churchill charabanc to start the company’s first service between Long Eaton and the Nottingham Goose Fair. The Robin Hood figure was added in the early 1960s when Barton took over Robin Hood Coaches and kept the colourful character.
Decorated in red with maroon roof and cream finish to front flash, window surrounds and wheels, the interior seating and floor is also moulded in red. Three silver bands run round the lower front, sides and rear of the bus and you can also see the well detailed AEC badge on the front above the radiator grille. The Metro-Cammell-Weymann badge appears on the back below the Robin Hood logo. Additional colourful decoration sees the Barton flag, together with Robin Hood on both sides, rounding off a very detailed and authentic model.
