This diminutive set features five delightful 1:148 scale (N-gauge) miniatures in the iconic two-tone green and cream livery of Southdown Motor Services Ltd - always a favourite amongst collectors. It comprises:

Weymann Fanfare Leyland. The popular Southdown single-decker is similar in every detail to its larger counterpart and comes with the Leyland chassis variant, registered XUF 141. Distinctive in its two-tone light and dark green colour scheme masked with cream and featuring gold graphics, our bus is off to Brighton.

Leyland Royal Tiger. The destination board sees this bus heading for Hayling Island whilst the separate side boards advertise Hire Southdown for your Private Party. Registered LUF 640 with black chassis, interior detail includes a black steering wheel and brown seating. The Southdown logo along the side is reproduced in gold with black dropped shadow and silver masking makes a great contrast to the green body colour. The wheel inserts are also green with silver masking.

The Guy Arab Utility was launched in the 1940s, the result of a Government requirement from the company for a chassis to carry a double decker body. The advertising panels are promoting Kemp Town Brewery on one side and Nodan Cures on the other. Travelling as the No. 12 and registered GUF 71, it is calling at Newhaven, Seaford and Eastbourne.

Plaxton Panorama. In the mid-1960s Plaxtons of Scarborough designed the Panorama I single deck coach featuring many refinements over its predecessors, leading the way in luxury coach travel of the day. Our Southdown version is decorated in two-tone green with silver trim with green interior seating. Note the wide split windscreen and the folding passenger door, quite an innovation in its day. Registered BUF 90C, is it is bound for Worthing.

Queen Mary. Southdown was the most prolific user of the Leyland Titan PD3/4, popularly known as the Queen Mary, which they used extensively throughout the 1960s. This model sees the double decker in characteristic green and cream with intricately detailed folding door feature towards the front of the nearside. Registered TCD 822, its destination board indicates it is going as the 31B to Shoreham, Worthing, Ferring and Littlehampton.
