Steam Powered Ice Cream Emporium
Steam Powered Ice Cream Emporium
Vintage steam powered omnibus, restored and converted into an ice cream van, situated at the Albert Dock Liverpool.

This Thornycroft steam bus, fired by coke, was originally a double decker seating 36 (a large number of passengers for that time). It was operated by the London Road Car Company Ltd for a trial period and ran on a service between Hammersmith and Oxford Circus via Shepherds Bush. It proved to be uneconomic and the trial was terminated after about 3 months.

This omnibus was used in the 2010 film “The Wolfman” LinkExternal link starring Anthony Hopkins.
