Northern General Routemaster


From the fleet of 51 long wheelbase forward entrance AEC Routematers operated by Northern General, only two received the Tyne & Wear yellow variant of NBC livery in the mid-1970's, 3071 (RCN687) and 3109 (FPT595C).


This model depicts the latter and was first released in 2015.  Fully resprayed in coach enamel with an Acrylic clear coat, the blinds show route 190 with Washington as the destination.


The commonplace "Shop at Binns" legend is carried front and rear in red.


Etched brass side mirrors are fitted along with trimless front wheels as per prototype.  It also features a gunmetal chassis with the side rails picked out in yellow matching the bodywork.
