EFE Upcoming Releases - Amendment to 38124

As many of you may already be aware, there is a problem with our recently announced Durham District VRT.  The model was prepared from information sent in to us which at the time we believed to be genuine, subsequently we have found the vehicle to have been fictitious and the reference image to have been expertly photoshopped, now don't we feel silly! We hold our hands up to our mistake, thankfully we've been able to alter the model before the production run had started which means it will now become a United Counties VRT1.




38124 - Bristol VRT1 - United Counties
In Tilling green livery United Counties operated services far and wide across the Home Counties from their base in Bedford. Registered UBD 756H, fleet number 756 and is shown on route 128 to Cambridge.
