One of the most popular buses in our fleet, Tiger Cub 452, is now the subject of a new model by Oxford Diecast. Oxford commissioned a company to do a thorough profile of 452 at our depot in April 2016 and this has helped produce a fine model which is now available. The work last year involved extensive 3D measuring using a laser plus laptop and a series of slightly mysterious white globes. Many interior and exterior photos helped to provide full detail for the model makers.

The attached photos show the model and the real 452 earlier this year at Sizergh Castle. Also shown is the bus being measured at our depot.
