100th Anniversary Model Coaches Available To Pre-Order!

We have several exciting plans in the making for the celebration of our 100th Anniversary in 2020 - The first being the opportunity for YOU to buy your very own model of a Barnes Coach!

The models are to be produced by the reputable Oxford Diecast and will be a replica of our ultra-modern Irizar i6 Integral tri-axle coach with 61 seats in our famous green colour scheme and modelling our new grey signwriting. The coach is registered YN18 ZNP.

There will be only 1000 of these in production, available from September 2019.
