I remember being a child and having a toy model of this bus. Years later and thanks to a partworks collection I could get this nicely done and cheap model. Maybe many of you are familiar with this coach. The model is made by Ixo and there are other 2 versions with more accurate ending and sold in the regular shops...

  Keko, I really like your bus.  I can't resist a few pictures of mine, which is pretty close to 1:43 in scale.

And pictured alongside a recent project reported here, my Bburago Lamborghini Diablo.

Enjoy!

I just read where Greyhound Bus Lines closed all Canadian routes permanently effective May 13th after more than 95 years in business servicing Canada.

Keko,  I suspect the toy Scenicruiser you had was a Tootsietoy.   Measured about 6 inches long as I recall.   Smaller than newer models like the 43rd IXO or the 50th scale Corgi.

Keko,   You must be a really young fellow.  That childhood Corgi Greyhound gift wasn't made all that long ago.  My records show I got mine in 2003.  Oh wait... that's 18 years back.  My childhood diecast gifts come from the 50s and 60s!

@john-quilter I'm 40. That toy was purchased around the mid-end of 80s. I supposed it was a Corgi as it was bought in Gibraltar.... but it can be the other you mention...

Keko, thank you very much for your gorgeous pictures. I was just looking for pictures of the bus. I also remember having this model in 1:64 when I was a child.
