An original and scarce example of a tinplate clockwork London Double Decker Trolley Bus with Stop-Start action manufactured c1940 by Wells Brimtoy prior to their Pocketoy series and originally sold under their Wells 'O' London label.
Modelled as a London Transport vehicle this early production model comes in all red colourway with detailed lithographed tin printing including driver and conductor to the rear platform. Trolley Bus comes in good condition which should be seen from the pics. The original red colour just turned to a kind of orange in course of time.

Route 516 with destination boards 'Stirling Road - Walthamstow' which was the address of the Brimtoy factory.

Black tinplate poles fitted to the roof.
Vehicle measures some 4.5" (11.4cm) in length.
Overall a super example of this scarce 1950's clockwork driven Wells Brimtoy commercial vehicle.
