At Atlas Editions we like to help you relive those treasured memories from yesteryear by producing top quality collectables and that means detail is absolutely key. We make sure each tiny aspect of our models is completely authentic – from the windscreen wipers to the original livery!
Our superb array of collections includes classic trams and coaches, traditional buses and fire engines, iconic trains and even vintage fairground vehicles. As well as our amazing die-cast metal models, you can also collect our stunning Glory of Steam Pocket watches – each piece a true celebration of the classic watchmaker’s art.
When they say “London” what do you think of? Yes, the big, bright red London bus. People love it. And of all the big bright red buses ever, the RTW and Routemaster models were most loved. When “they” planned to ditch them, Londoners protested. But as usual, “they” won.
Everybody loves Blackpool – the Prom, the Tower, the lights and, above all, the Blackpool Tram. They’ve been happily trundling up and down the seafront since 1934 – in fact, when they tried to phase them out after WWII there was a public outcry and back they came.
Blitzed by Nazi bombs during WWII, Britain was a nation in flames. It was a time when the fire service truly came into its own. From the early 1950s we saw a spate of revolutionary new fire engines, design and technical marvels born of the Blitz and drawing on those dark days for inspiration and innovation.
Our stunning 1:76-scale die-cast model replicates every detail of this industrial mega-machine in perfect detail. It’s fully articulated, too, and had been reproduced in satisfyingly heavy solid metal. Even better, it’s officially licensed and approved by Eddie Stobart, so you can rest assured that it is 100% accurate in every respect, from the up-to-date livery to the ‘W122’ fleet number.
Traditional travelling fairs and circuses are an integral part of our heritage. Their heyday was that golden postwar age from the 50s to the 70s – and that’s what this evocative 1:76 scale metal model we’ve created represents.
We recreated the Massey Ferguson TE20 vehicle in perfect 1:32 scale die-cast metal miniature. Worth £15.99, our detailed replica is just £1.99, with FREE p&p. It will be sent to you plinth-mounted in a special presentation box, along with a Certificate of Authenticity and a FREE Ferguson TE20 print worth £4.99.
Progress is a wonderful thing. Rail transport, for example, is much more efficient nowadays. But at what cost? It’s a lot quicker to get from A to B, no doubt about that, but surely we’ve lost something along the way? It was only a generation or two ago that a journey by train was an event and not just a means to an end.
We’ve all got treasured memories of fun-filled coach journeys. Perhaps yours is a school trip for an exciting day out, with everyone rushing for the back seats!; or maybe it’s a works outing (remember those?) to the bright lights of Blackpool, ‘Dreamland’ at Margate or the bracing sea air of Skegness; then again, it could even be a holiday, motoring across country or – if you were really lucky – heading off to the Continent as a pioneering, pre-package-holiday tourist.
