The SeaSpeed Sea Buses

 

A matching pair of models advertising the former British Rail SeaSpeed hovercraft service that operated across the Solent between Southampton - Cowes on the Isle of Wight.  Adverts for this service were carried by both Southern Vectis, and Hants & Dorset vehicles in the local vicinity.

 

The adverts, which date from the mid-1970's, are essentially both the same but written the oppositie way around relevant to each area, with differing phone numbers for the local enquiries office.  All details that have been checked and carefully researched.

 

In addition to their nearside SeaSpeed adverts, both models also carry authentic period advertising on their offsides.
