EFE Road Marks 70 Years of The London Routemaster

Four new 1:76-scale Routemaster bus models were unveiled at the London Bus Museum’s Spring Gathering!

The announcement marked 70 years since the first Routemaster prototype, RM1, was unveiled to the world in 1954. Development had started in 1947, with design by London Transport (LT). Construction was undertaken at LT’s Chiswick Works, assisted by Park Royal Vehicles using mechanical units provided by sister company AEC.

The four new EFE Road models represent examples of this iconic type during various stages of their extensive careers. They are the first to be produced using EFE Road’s newly refined Routemaster tooling, and now feature such enhancements as bodyside panel lines and highly detailed liveries and advertisements.
