Rapido have looked into the license fees for at least one North American possibility based on Facebook requests - I believe the fictional "AmRoad" used in the movie Silver Streak - and the fees were so expensive it would significantly increase the cost of the model.  So I wouldn't expect anything Harry Potter.

Hornby does have the Harry Potter licence and the Knight Bus is produced by Corgi in 4mm scale. (CJL)

Hoping for a Routemaster RM or RML to this standard next please. A few dotted around the layout would be amazing! Maybe even Harry’s Knight Bus?

The Knight Bus is a Regent, rather than a Routemaster ;-)

Indeed it is. Workers in grubby overalls and smokers went upstairs on the easy to clean seats whilst those in clean clothes went downstairs on the posh seats.

 

I remember the days of the smokers being upstairs and the fog, the stench and the condensation pouring down the windows. Which were never open.

 

How things have changed, when my nephew was trying to work out how to use the USB port on the back of the seat in the vintage bus to Llangollen and didn't know that it was an ashtray. :laugh:

Got mine today after prompting Rails and what a gem it is. I like the instructions, even my grumpy teenage son laughed.

  on mine the moquette is only printed on the seats downstairs, is that the same as the prototype?

Upstairs seating was covered with Rexine or Leathercloth, which had a grain but virtually even colour.

Impressive; would like to see Rapido stray into the trolley bus area, for example the three axle trolley buses as found in Huddersfield. One would go nicely with other Huddersfield omnibuses I have.
