    The front class 33 has to be a Heljan one, the cab roof cowling is the wrong shape (doesn't slope on top), the front of the cab roof is not quite right and all the beading etc is a bit chunky. While looking at photos to double check I noticed that the top panel is missing from all the cab roof cowlings on photos taken from the 1970s onwards - if it is blue it should have rectangular holes cut in the top of the cowlings and the horns added.

    an unusual vehicle not one I've seen before - forgive my ignorance - what is the purpose of the barrier coach? I presume it's acting as a barrier but between what?
