-289 AEC Routemaster Bus (1964-80)

You wait ages for one bus to come and then four come altogether!!

And four different types of box.

Re : -289 AEC Routemaster Bus (1964-80)

Dave--"All good things in due time" seems apt here....very nice to get even one, and to get four of them all at once.....very nice!  Are there more variations, or is that the whole range?  Like Jan, that is somewhat out of my personal collecting range, so I am not very familiar with them at all.  But nice score!

                       Best regards,  Terry

Re : -289 AEC Routemaster Bus (1964-80)

There are at least 15 variations. They are also after I had stopped collecting as a young lad and these four were very cheap and I was curious. They are really well made and I am very pleased with them.

They ran from 1964 to 1978 and these are fairly early ones, I don't think I will be getting any more - I definitely won't be getting the version with Speedwheels.

I will add a bit more next week

There are three variations of the standard bus plus the transfers variations plus at least 14 promotionnals.

The variations are : the ventilators bars have been deleted (David  your Madame Tussaud seem to be missing one of these bars.

The clippie has been deleted

The change to Speedwheels

Re : -289 AEC Routemaster Bus (1964-80)

I know about the window bars, the paint is totally complete around the frame so this is a casting fault. This is present only on the left hand side, the right hand side is complete with three bars.

Later ones are correct so the die must have been repaired at some time.
