In 1994 Dublin Bus painted two of its RH Class Leyland Olympians in a hand painted all over advertising livery for the newly rebranded Iarnrod Eireann, one advertising its passenger services and one its fast track parcel business. RH41 advertised Intercity, DART and the then new Arrow Services. Based in Donnybrook Garage, it was a favourite on routes 11, 45 and "nitelink" services during the mid 1990s.

Excellent Model

Excellent model by Britbus for IRM. It a shame they don’t more Irish buses.
This is an upmarket model with plenty of detail, for the collector or someone involved in the Irish scene.

David Wilson

A very well executed complicated livery of various trains covering the whole bus, only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that one of the back wheels was stuck fast, not free running. But that doesn't really matter on what is a static model. Well pleased with it.

Olympiad Leyland - route 11

The bus has a lovely livery and is very well finished.
There was a small problem, which I was able to rectify. The front wheels had been inserted "back to front" in the factory, which caused the bus to 'dip' towards the front. I was able to remove quite easily, reverse and replace. The forward dip disappeared and the bus looks perfect. It adds beautifully to my recreated 1990s layout.

Plaudits where it's due

I nearly choked on my big mac when I opened the box while sitting in my local Makky D's instead of bothering to do any work. Bravo IRM, plaudits where they deserve!
