Oxford Diecast Weymann Fanfare - Southdown
For the second release of its mighty Weymann Fanfare, Oxford has chosen the beautiful and very popular livery of Southdown.
The Weymann Fanfare with its AEC chassis is a collectors’ favourite and this is the Leyland-engined version.
The fresh two-tone light and dark green Southdown livery is perfectly applied and features cream masking around the windows with cream detailing to the front and rear. The Southdown logo is correctly printed in gold and black dropped shadow lettering with chrome work to the lower body, together with the bright green wheel hubs, all adding to the attractive finish. Interior detail includes a compartment for the driver with pale green passenger seating throughout.
Registered XUF 141, this single-deck 37 seater Brighton-based Southdown coach is heading to Bournemouth and, with its 30 mph speed limit, it would have made for a very leisurely ride along the south coast in great comfort.
Another absolutely beautiful release by Oxford and at a superb price too.
