Bus record is just the ticket

Geoff Price has 8,200 buses and trams
A West Midlands man is heading for the Guiness Book of Records - thanks to his massive collection of toy buses.

Geoff Price, 52, from Walsall, has 8,200 model buses and trams crammed into his house and garage.

Geoff, who had to move house because his last home could not hold all the vehicles, has toured the world to build up his collection.

And he hopes to eventually build his mammoth collection up to 10,000 models.

"If I see a bus I haven't got - even if it's only 50p - I have to have it," Geoff said.

Geoff's oldest model is a 1908 Spanish tin-plate tram, and the first he bought was a 1958 Dinky coach.
