Hi Doug.
I have started design and build on a new 'T' gauge London based layout around the 1980s/90s period featuring 3rd rail BR slam door stock and a section of LT surface line operation.
I would like to ask if it would be possible for you to add some London Transport buses to your selection of road vehicles, such as Routemasters and possibly an RT or RTL and maybe also an RF coach please.
They would certainly be helpful to me for my layout.
I look forward to hearing you views on my request, after all you did ask for ideas.
Best regards, Noel Dollimore.

Sounds an interesting layout...you'll have to document progress on it here. And I'll take a look at doing a few double deckers, etc.

I have to admit I'm not geeky enough to instantly recognise what a RT, RLT or RF looks like. :oops: Well, that's what Google is for! And that's even after having seen one or two of the London Bus Museum's buses on an away day at Crich at their London special event.

Hi Doug.
Thank you very much for your prompt reply, I'll post some pictures of the buses to help you identify them.
For info An RT was The Standard 1940s/1960s AEC double decker and an RTL was the Leyland engined version, (only visible difference is a Leyland style radiator rather than an an AEC one).
On second thoughts, probably the RF is a little out of period for what I'm doing so an AEC merlin would be more in keeping, if at all possible please.
Whatever you can achieve will be great as no one does any LT buses in 'T'.
Many thanks Doug, I'll look forward to seeing some results whenever you get time to 'play', Hope these pics are of some use.
Best regards, Noel.

Hi Doug, the pictures you messaged me are the sort of thing I was thinking of.

That's good Mike. They should be straight forward to do.

Just for completeness, here's the pics I sent Mike:

They're in the development stage at present....but will appear in the shop very soon.

I think I need to adapt the run around loops for the bridge into a test track assembly....should be simple to do.

Its based on the now closed Galaxy cinema in Long Eaton, Nottingham.

Next will be a Norman church, followed by some rows of 1960s and 1970s shops.
