LONDON BUS MUSEUM SPRING GATHERING
I have just returned from the London Bus Museum Spring Gathering. The weather was hot and Sunny, with a temperature of about 25 degrees. The two London Bus Museum Jotus T & TD resin models were selling very well and any remaining stock will go on sale on the Museums web shop on Wednesday www.lbmshop.com.

Bachmann had a display with a number of models on view including their forthcoming previously announced models along with a selection of models from their Graham Farrish n-gauge bus range and also models from their Pocket Bond range. 3 members of staff were on the stand to talk to collectors. They announced a new two bus EFE gift set and a new model, see details below. I hope to publish some photographs later:
