    The Matchbox Monday I am posting from my phone and the generator is out of gas.
    This is the Model of Yesteryear No.12 1899 London Horse-Bus. It was released it 1959 and sold through 1965. Sadly it is missing its horses but still displays nicely in a curio cabinet.

      Stay safe. :-(

      *snip*

      Garden Seat Horse Omnibus London General Omnibus Co. This vehicle was built in 1895 by which time the "garden seat" had almost replaced the earlier "knifeboard" type of omnibus. The driver's box, high up, was a direct survival from coaching practice. At the rear the old step and strap had given place to a platform and stairway. This vehicle is preserved at the Museum of British Transport, London, S.W.4

      Thank you very much Watchsearcher.

      Thank you very much elanski.

      Thank you very much keramikos. Not snowed in but went out and internet and cell towers went down. I have a generator so I stayed warm and now I am way behind.

      Also thank you for all the information keramikos.

      Thank you very much Glenn. I will see if they are available.

      fortapache, You're welcome. :-)

      I was initially concerned by your remark that your generator had run out of fuel, but then I saw you commenting again not too long thereafter, so I figured you were OK.

      The history and evolution of that omnibus was an enjoyable little rabbit hole for me.

      So cool, I will have to post my Coca-Cola delivery team, to ride along side your tea !!!
