NWFA001 WEYMANN FANFARE SOUTH WALES BUS
South Wales Transport was formed in 1914 as a subsidiary of BET and had three batches of AEC Reliance with Weymann Fanfare bodywork, the first two in 1956 and the last in 1958. Oxfords model, NCY 626 with Fleet Number 1032, was the last of the second batch of five and used for Continental tours. Replaced by Harrington Cavaliers in 1967, NCY 626 was then used on day tours and for private hire until being withdrawn in 1970. Sold into preservation in 1980, she was then purchased by the South Wales Transport Group in 2005 and now resides at the Swansea Bus Museum in the city.
Decorated in the authentic pale buttermilk and deep red bodywork, with black chassis, our model has cream interior flooring and contrasting blue seating. The Metro Cammell Weymann logo is faithfully reproduced on the rear of the coach while the AEC badge and destination ROME are printed on the front below the driver’s magnificent panoramic windscreen. Even the GB sticker has been applied. Other minute printing indicates that the Transport Manager at the time was Mr H Weedy, based at the Russell Street depot in Swansea, the speed capacity was 30 mph and the coach sat 37 passengers.
