Default Another day, another omnibus

Probably a tad over 1/87, but beggars can't be choosers when you 6,000 miles
from the source. Picked this up in a junk shop for a pittance. Haven't done
too much work on the OO layout because of, well, work, but it's a start...

I presume that you are referring to the topless bus. I found 2 in a second hand shop and bought them, also for a pittance, for when I actually get around to building a new layout.

British Southern 4 4 0.jpg

Electrotren olive oil amphorae.jpg

British hay wagon and thatch houses.jpg

british medieval trumpeters.jpg
A few recent scenes from "Bamburgh." The medieval trumpeters
are "re-enactors" of a medieval festival. The general period
lies in or about 1923, hence Edwardian.

The Electrotren with amphorae is a long story, a fantasy piece.
The street rather needs something along its border, but I can't
figure what. Any suggestions?

I am going to have to redo my road crossings, they came out
looking like blobs of sand.

Another video of Bamburgh. There is no thematic drift to it, I simply wanted an excuse
to use the music of the Blaggards, which is such a different, remarkable sound. Scottish by ancestry, I have yet to find any Scottish rock music. I am trolling for suggestions, thank you.

Topless bus? You mean open top bus.

Yikes, that gives me ideas...topless bus...

Britain has an enormous folklore of Knights in Shining Armor and of Dragons. Here is a light spoof on that subject, I hope you enjoy it. My 15 year old daughter Isabella assisted greatly.

Open top suggests that it has a top which is open. Topless suggests no top at all. You are probably correct and I just used foreigner quick speak. Anyway, I have 2 of them made by Lesney, though they will probably never find a place on any layout.

Buses without a top are called open top buses in the UK.

Topless has only one meaning in the Oxford dictionary and is usually to be seen on a beach or in a tabloid newspaper.
