AVAILABLE NOW! 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. Some will be available painted and finished.
