Seen at Totally Models

As part of 'Totally Models' Two preserved buses owned by Martin Gurr and Gary Conn provided a half hourly shuttle from Blundell Street to Starr Gate connecting with the Heritage Tram Tours. Delta 133 of 1991, poses alongside Centenary 648 of 1985 (Paul Turner)

Atlantean 362 of 1983 was the other bus, seen here at Blundell Street with 133 (Paul Turner)

Heritage livery Trident 332 was brought out for photos and was briefly posed alongside 133 (Paul Turner)

The model display was in the Paint and Body Shops at Rigby Road and the entry area allowed a view of the bus yard, and different vehicles were kindly posed during the day. Restored, but not yet operational Atlantean 364 and Heritage Trident 332 pose together (Paul Turner)

Later 332 and 364 moved into the storage rows, alongside ex Fylde Atlantean 45 - 364 and 45 were two of only four Atlanteans to receive B-prefixes - 45 being the last to enter service of maintstream UK production (Paul Turner)

Among the excellent models was Mike Wilson's recreation of Fylde's Squires Gate Depot with his amazing collection of local models, many scratchbuilt. (Paul Turner)

Spot the difference- Mike's model has a removeable front section to allow the original brickwork or later panelled front to be displayed. (Paul Turner)
