Not seen any mention of this on RMweb.
I saw it a couple of weeks ago and thought that it would make a good focal point for a diaorama to display a few bus models.I don't know if it is a specific prototype but it has that 1930s look. London Transport, country area, would see it quite at home, or even a family likeness to Chelmsford. Not cheap at around £36 but the finish is quite remarkable for a RTP product. The roof is particularly well done and the brick work, while possibly being a tad on the orange side,has well picked out mortar courses. Couldn't resist trying it out in a mock up arrangement. I see it as having great potential.

I don't see why not. You would need to invent some ficticious history about what it is used for.
Another possibility to individualize it would be to add some doors on one or both sides.
