Crossways have won the contract to operate (fictionally in 1:76 scale form) the shuttle bus services for this year's National Hunt festival at Cheltenham racecourse.
Buses and coaches have been hired in from a number of operators for this event, as the total number of vehicles required (76) is more than we are able to gather from our own fleet. The vehicles have been split over the following routes:
R1: Cheltenham Railway station to Racecourse, PVR: 40
R2: Cheltenham town centre to Racecourse, PVR: 36
R3: Waterwells Park and Ride to Racecourse, PVR: 10
Route R3 is a brand new trial route for this year, it being part of an attempt to draw traffic off the motorways and therefore reduce congestion in the area. However, the othertwo routes are exisiting long established routes taken on from the real race shuttles operated by Stagecoach.
A fleet list of our vehicles participating and all of the vehicles hired in is available on the 'our fleet' page of this website, and photos will be posted throughout the week on Crossways' flickr page, https://www.flickr.com/photos/crosswaysbus/.

The latest addition to the Crossways model fleet is BX63 YTR, a Mercedes Sprinter minicoach. This vehicle has just 8 seats, owing to its size and additional extras such as a fridge and sink in one corner, earning it the name 'mini luxury'. It wears the newer style livery for smaller vehicles (now as popular as normal 'lines' fleet livery).
The vehicle was bought from Gloucestershire County Council as a 10 seat minibus in June, and the vehicle was converted into a minicoach as can be seen in the potographs on the fleet details page.
In real life, this vehicle is a heavily modified Siku Mercedes Sprinter minibus, with most of the work undertaken in rebuilding the interior to convert it to a minicoach and right hand drive.
