Bundy clock and bus stop
An unmistakeable piece of street furniture during the 1950s and 1960s was the ‘Bundy Clock. These were time recorders and each bus conductor carried their own so they could record the progress of their journey.
Forward Models will be producing scale versions to add to your layout, along with a bus stop and bus shelter, all in typical BCT style and colours.
Buy them as a kit to paint and finish yourself.
We now offer a range of bus side advertisements, as used on our own models. Ask for a list. However, our packs of Birmingham destinations are nearly sold out.
We can now also provide alternative routes for your Edinburgh, Newcastle and Hull fleets.
