New Routemaster Bus

Routemaster Bus 1


Is is recommended you use a Laser Machine for this project to enhance the detail as shown in the picture.  

However, you can use a CNC Router or whatever method you choose to use. You just won't have the exact detail shown in the picture.

The Routemaster Bus

The AEC Routemaster was a double-decker bus designed by London Transport and built 
by the Associated Equipment Company and Park Royal Vehicles. The first prototype 
was completed in September 1954 and the last one was delivered in 1968. The layout 
of the vehicle was traditional for the time, with a half-cab, front mounted engine 
and open rear platform, although the coach version was fitted with rear platform 
doors. Forward entrance vehicles with platform doors were also produced as was a 
unique front entrance prototype with the engine mounted transversely at the rear. 
The first entered service with London Transport in 1956 and the last were withdrawn 
from regular service in December 2005, although two heritage routes are operated by 
Routemasters in central London.
Most Routemasters were built for London Transport, although small numbers were 
built for British European Airways and the Northern General Transport Company. A 
total of 2,876 Routemasters were built with 1,280 still in existence.
A pioneering design, the Routemaster outlasted several of its replacement types in 
London, survived the privatisation of the former London Transport bus operators and 
was used by other operators around the UK. In modern UK public transport bus 
operation, the old-fashioned features of the standard Routemaster were both praised 
and criticised. The open platform, while exposed to the elements, allowed boarding 
and alighting away from stops; and the presence of a conductor allowed minimal 
boarding time and optimal security, but with greater labour costs.
The Routemaster became one of London's most famous symbols, with much tourist 
paraphernalia continuing to bear Routemaster imagery, and with examples still in 
existence around the world.
Despite the retirement of the original version, the Routemaster has retained iconic 
status. In the late 2000s work began on a bus inspired by the Routemaster's 
traditional design, which entered service in February 2012.

The routemaster bus comes with a multi-page color assembly guide using photographic quality
rendering and assembly images.



This model comes in 1/4", 1/8" and 1/2" scales with
1/8" being the smallest.
It also comes in 3mm, 6mm and 12mm sizes and two fully different scales sets for smaller or larger Routers or Lasers.
We have created the files as Laser ready meaning they do not have any dogbone fillets in the slots and tabs
but you also get a set of files with all the dogbone fillets in them so they are ready to toolpath and cut on your CNC router.

That's many different file types scales and formats for this Routemaster Bus Pattern!
All makeCNC Premium Products come in this format for the highest quality CNC projects on the market today!
