Ever notice you cannot find Bus Models for your Garden Railway?
After some years of searching, for my collection, I found a private individual who makes executive Desk top cast resin bus models. They have amazing detail at 1/32” scale!! He still had molds for the 1950’s Greyhound and Trailways buses. I ordered 19, with the intent of selling 14. I have sold seven. In the photos I show two single deck GM buses, one of those is now sold, leaving seven.
Note: The last bus on the end is a Custom Trailways bus that was owned by Elvis Presley. This model is mounted on a wood plaque with a placard that identifies it as a model of Elvis’ custom bus, with an authentic Elvis signature. That is a one off collector’s item, for which we would have to discuss the price.

Are these buses still available? Thanks, Ralph M.

Hi Ralph,
In case you don't get an answer, just search for 1/32 Greyhound Bus and you will find other listings.
These come from Brazil and are solid resin cast.
I went with old tin 'toys' that happen to be 1/32 scale.
Cheers,

Thanks for the reply. I know that there is someone selling a Greyhound bus for 295.00 and it a full casting. But these were 100.00 cheaper, but I can't find any direct way of communicating with the "deyermann" What more info might you have regarding the tin bus.

Hi Ralph,
If you click on 'Deyermanns" name you can contact him with the 'start conversation' feature.
It's the same as sending a direct message to him.
The tin Scenicruisers are Japanese friction toys and measure 14 ½" in length, so very near 1/32 scale if you are not fussy.
I just park them behind my station so that they look the part.
Be careful as there are lots of different lengths listed on eBay, which is where I found mine.
You will probably have to pay from $50 to $150 depending on condition.
I like them better than the 'solid' models as you can see through the windows, but they are certainly NOT as detailed!
Cheers,
David
