1 1/2 inch scale "Garden seat" horse drawn bus - stock code 7283

A beautifully made "Garden Seat" horse drawn bus, built to 1 1/2 inch scale and largely complete bar painting. Finely detailed throughout, including buttoned upholstery to the seats and a destination board inside. Complete with a set of 9 sheets of drawings.

The prototype dated from the 1880s - the last development of the horse drawn bus, it was about the biggest vehicle a pair of horses could pull for a day's work around London. Be nice if Uber had a couple on their fleet.
