Re : New arrivals

Richard

Although I have quite a lot of pictures of the 410 Bedford CF vans, All the models in your picture are different from mine except for the Pickford's van.

Your original Dinky Royal Mail van has black wheels while mine has chrome wheels.

Your Kodak finish is very different from mine.

My Dunlop van is yellow / red, yours is red.

Your Oxo van has two more words than mine.

My Avis van has "Avis" writen at the front, yours is at the back.

My Esso van is white, yours is red.

All the best.

Jacques

Re : New arrivals

Hi Jacques.

Back home ?

Even the Pickford is different : yours has a transfer on the front, mine has one on the rear doors and none on the front.

The hubs of the "Kodak" are the same as the "Falk" shown on your picture.

Kind regards

Richard

Re : New arrivals

Thank you Jacques. I enjoyed seeing the model and the photograph of the original vehicle on which it was based.

As a boy I lived in London and was, for a while, a keen 'bus spotter'. London Transport, as it was then known, had a huge network of bus and trolleybus routes with thousands of buses in service. As late as 1958 LT were ordering AEC Tower Wagons for overhead use. The oldest of these (in 1963) was a 1936 AEC Mercury and the oldest road vehicle then in use was a 1931 AEC Regent Railway Breakdown Tender, used on the London Underground system. 

I'm happy to say that I still have my Ian Allan ABC books for both LT buses and the Southern Region of British Railways and cherish the memories they evoke.

Kind regards

John
