Specific Item Information: A completely new model, the Burlingham Seagull represents a golden age in coach travel and what better company livery to launch this 1950s coach in 1:148 scale than Wallace Arnold.
Model Information: This tooling was launched by Oxford in 2018.
When coach services were deregulated by the Transport Act 1980 in October 1980, Wallace Arnold was a founding member of the British Coachways consortium that competed with the state-owned National Express. It left after a year and briefly ran its own service from London to Torbay. The business was owned by the Barr & Wallace Arnold Trust. In 1997, Wallace Arnold was sold to 3i. In April 1994, the company gained infamy, when five of their fleet, transported all of the audience members of an episode of Don't Forget Your Toothbrush to Disneyland Paris, after the two selected audience members won the "Light Your Lemon" game.
In April 2005, Wallace Arnold merged with Shearings to become WA Shearings. In 2007 the Wallace Arnold name was dropped and now the company is known as Shearings Holidays. The merger included eight travel shops in Yorkshire, rebranded from the WA Shearings name until 2010, when they reverted to their original Wallace Arnold Travel name.
Their N-scale collection is using the 1:148 scale ratio as most British manufacturers.
