Bachmann Exclusive: 31306 - Daimler B20 - London Driver Training Bus

We have been asked by Bachmann Europe Plc to produce another exclusive model, which will be available solely from Bachmann Stockists. 

Driver training vehicles have long been a feature of daily operations for bus companies all over the UK. The need to recruit and instruct new drivers is constant. Suitable vehicles were not always available, as to take a bus from revenue earning service to utilise as a trainer is not ideal. Instead, it has become common practice to use vehicles that have ended their service with the passenger carrying fleets and yet are still in good enough running order to fulfil a vital duty.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST EDITIONS Bachmann Exclusive: 31306 - Daimler B20 - London Driver Training Bus
EXCLUSIVE FIRST EDITIONS Bachmann Exclusive: 31306 - Daimler B20 - London Driver Training Bus
31306 - Daimler Fleetline B20 - London General Driver Training Bus
Our model depicts a very typical London Driver Training bus in the form of DMS 2422, registered OJD 422R decorated with prototypical markings and company advertising. Most bus garages will have at least one such dedicated vehicle, making this fine EFE model an ideal addition to any collection. 

This model is priced £32.75 and is available to pre-order now!
