Northcord's striking Abellio bus is literally an outstanding piece of work
Northcord Model Company Alexander Dennis E400H MMC - Abellio
REF: UKBUS 6509
The latest release from the rejuvenated Northcord Model Company is this strikingly-liveried ADL Enviro400H MMC double-decker.
The third livery to be carried on its brand-new Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC casting is Abellio London with standard London red livery. It represents fleet number 2616 (registration number SN18 KLJ) that has 10.3 metre, dual-door bodywork and was new to Abellio London in 2018. This vehicle has a Euro6 hybrid driveline and the newly released model demonstrates the special cooling apertures that are appropriate to this hybrid bus. The model carries the roof fleet number ABL2616.
This bus is based at Abellio London’s Walworth Depot where it operates on busy route 196 which runs between Elephant & Castle and Newington Causeway.
The Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC UK6509 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square-cornered, patented quick-release windows of the real bus and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible.
Another main feature on this model is its dual individual tree protectors at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.
Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, represent the real and outstanding layout of the Enviro400H MMC, such as the additional ventilation equipment on the upper deck ceiling, and the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper and lower decks.
The finish is astonishingly good throughout clearly demonstrating the amount of work that goes into these models, making the price a bit of a bargain.
Your fleet needs one!
