Alexander bodied doubledecker
"Coming soon" was a new casting announced at SHOWBUS 2009 - the Alexander doubledecker. Many casting variations were expected, including dual door but it was a non-starter as EFE concentrated on re-issuing previous models with different destinations and registrations. Illustrated is former Alexander (Midland) MRF120 (SMS120P) a Daimler Fleetline undergoing restoration at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum in August 2009, photo by Dave Reid.

A 1/24th scale model of the RF was announced at SHOWBUS 2007,
the patterns were shown at SHOWBUS 2008 but the project was also still born.

EFE announced a new modern vehicle casting at SHOWBUS 2006 and gave the details in 2007 of the new East Lancs Olympus double and singledeckers. Uncertainties at East Lancs/Optare delayed commissioning of the model since branded the Optare Olympus and has since emerged as the integral MetroCity. In the meantime TTC announced the model to be introduced into their new range at TTC SHOWBUS 2011 but that too has stalled, with their Spectra and Versa models a long time in gestation and these projects have since passed to Jotus with whom TTC were working.
