Celebrating thirty years…

We have now celebrating our thirtieth year trading in transport collectables after starting in February 1989, and we have come a long way from just selling promotional models.

As regular supporters of many charitable and preservation projects that are of interest to us, and those that share and likewise support our sales, we employed Nigel of Lawrence Signs from Woodingdean make up and affix a number of posters depicting our anniversary images, created by our in-house graphic artist, Harry Dinnage to three vehicles currently in preservation.

The Brighton Bus Preservation Society have now supported us in this reciprocal way, by allowing us to have these images displayed on all three of their fleet of preserved vehicles. During the rally season you will see these buses at various events and will therefore be will be caught on film by many, and to be seen for years to come. Therefore in supporting us you support the Brighton Bus Preservation Society too. If you would like to support them too then please do make a donation here:

An earlier sponsorship with a bus advert as such, was a ride-on model of the Southdown Queen Mary PD3 which used to be seen at a number of running days like the big Southsea Rally and Littlehampton Bus Running Day.
