This Bristol Lodekka 38A Bournemouth Diecast Model Bus is Cream and has working wheels and also comes in a display case. It is made by Corgi and is 1:76 scale (approx. 10cm / 3.9in long). Established in Salisbury in 1915 - Wilts & Dorset Motor Services Ltd operated regular services throughout South Wiltshire - East Dorset and North Hampshire - operating a diverse fleet of vehicles. Surviving ownership under the Tilling and British Automobile Traction (T&BAT) Group - Southern Railway and Nationalisation in 1948 - in 1969 the company was absorbed into Hants & Dorset under the National Bus Company. In 1972 the Wilts & Dorset name disappeared - but was revived in 1983. In January 1966 - Bristol Lodekka 646 - registration 684 AAM - was painting into a unique cream and maroon livery for operation on the Salisbury to Bournemouth limited stop service - retaining it until May 1969. The limited stop 38A route between Salisbury and Bournemouth ran via Fordingbridge - Ringwood and Ferndown (the Bournemouth Spur Road from Ashley Heath to Cooper Dean having not yet been built) - and did the journey in 78 minutes. There were two journeys in each direction on weekdays - with timings suitable for people commuting to Bournemouth - or making day visits to Salisbury.
