Over the years Digbys has worked hard to offer collectors the more unusual models that make a collection interesting. Digbys promises that its latest offering will appeal not only to bus enthusiasts but also to those who hanker for a return to the days of the trolleybus.

Digbys has just released two 1/64 scale diecast models with plastic components that represent Beijing trolleybuses from the past. Both models are approx 26cm long and come with highly detailed interior, poseable front wheels, separate windscreen wipers and skilfully modelled booms.

Production is limited to only 1,000 pieces with the majority of the models being sold in China.

Also on offer from Digbys is a Skoda bus with trailer dating, Digbys believes, from the 1960s. It is produced to the same scale as the trolleybuses. All of the models are priced at £59 plus P&P.
