New AEC Reliance Arrives

Last modified date

This week our latest EFE model, a BET bodied AEC Reliance carrying the South Yorkshire Transport livery (E24332), arrived into our warehouse and is now available to be dispatched to our stockists.

New to Maidstone & District in 1961, 336 NKT was brought in to Booth & Fisher’s fleet in 1973. In 1975 South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) took over operations, though Booth & Fisher was operated as a separate company for a few years until all vehicles had been repainted in to SYPTE colours.

Our model depicts 336 NKT, in SYPTE livery whilst still carrying the Booth & Fisher legal lettering. Fleet numbered No. 1087, on route 256 to Killamarsh. E24332 is not only set to be EFE’s first model release of 2018, it is also the first EFE model to feature newly tooled side mirrors – one of the many enhancements Bachmann is making to existing EFE castings!
