Handcross dormy shed Southdown
A characteristic of the Southdown bus company shared by other rural operators, was the use of small 'dormy sheds' in which to outstation vehicles. This was a means of avoiding excessive 'dead mileage' by travelling back to a large garage each night. This card model from the Kingsway Models range depicts a two bus shed that still stands, albeit disused in Handcross, Sussex. Shown with 1/76 scale EFE utility Guy bus and Oxford Diecast Morris Minor.
