The Little Bus Company produces an ever-changing range of model bus and coach kits representing vehicles which were built and operated from the 1930s to the 1970s. Each kit is available for a variable, limited period, and some are re-issued, depending on demand.
The availability list below gives the status of the current range and will be updated regularly, as changes occur. New kits are generally announced twice a year and may then be pre-ordered.
Production is a slow process and whilst we try to maintain planned dates, changes (or even substitutions), may occur at short notice. Please this page to keep up with the latest Little Bus News!
Don't forget to have a look at what is ....... Coming Soon !
You can also try the new re-issues news page - here.
Please note that where a display page with full details and photographs of the model is available, the Kit No. is a link to that page. Where the page has not yet been created, the Kit No. link will take you to the Coming Soon page with photographs of the masters in development.
The new kits illustrated on the Home page and Coming Soon page will be available gradually in due course, and will also acquire their own pages. All customers with pre-orders will be notified as usual.
Please note that NO PAYMENT IS REQUIRED ON PRE-ORDERS UNTIL AVAILABLE.

These are now all in production and should be available in the Autumn. And also about the same time was the re-issue of Londoners ST1 and trolleybus TBK2. Plus a late addition to accompany the trolleybus will be an LT Leyland Cub tender. It was hoped to release this with the K2 but this will now follow at a later date depending on orders.
Some of you may be aware that through the Winter I have been involved with Tony Swift in the return of an ex Sheffield Leyland Atlantean from Australia. New in 1973 it was exported to Australia in 1985 with eight other Sheffield buses. Initially it was employed on tourist work with AAT Kings and Australian Pacific in Sydney. A period followed when it did little work and was bought by Fantastic Aussie Tours at Katooma in 2003 for service on the Blue Mountains Explorer and was eventually withdrawn in November 2011.
It is now privately owned in Sheffield in the care of the South Yorkshire Transport Trust where it arrived in March 2012. It is at present in all over red livery and it is hoped to eventually restore it to the cream and blue livery of Sheffield Transport.
To commemorate this event the Atlantean kit ELC 1 is being re-issued later in the year so if you are interested please pre-order now.
You will no doubt be aware of the increase in postal charges and as the post office have also changed the scaling of charges the following will now apply:
For up to 4 kits a total of £3.50 and 5 kits and over £7.00. Overseas charges will be double in each case.
Wheels and accessories minimum £2.00.
