Orange (or yellow?) Bertie?
#1
Is anyone aware of a version of Bertie the bus that isn't red? I saw a listing on eBay with an orange (or maybe yellowish) motorized Bertie, but I didn't know there were any versions that weren't red. Bulgy, sure, they made a red and then green version, but not Bertie. Anyone have any insight? Thanks!

I saw the same same Listing and thought the same thing.

This is odd beyond belief. It was most likely a factory error since it almost looks like a normal one that got bleached. Strangely, the wheels are still the correct colour.

Reminds me of this Mighty Mac coach (left) we had a thread about:

I wonder if it is just one that was left in the sun for too long, red gets affected by the sun more than other colours and bleaches quickly....

It doesn't appear, to me, to be a result of sun fading because the color looks to be completely uniform. I suppose it could be a (very nicely done) custom job? Or it's just some factory error. I certainly can't find anything on the interwebs that describes a Bertie variant of any kind.

Is there any reference to a relative of sorts to Bertie in any of the shows episodes?

Of course looking at the picture it could just be a really awful photo lol! The lighting is not at all consistent in that shot...

@Super, yes, the seller accepted my best offer. I really only bought it for the strange looking bertie. I already have the other vehicles, so I figured I'd send an offer and see what happened. I really shouldn't be spending money on what will essentially be duplicates, but I couldn't resist the odd bertie. As it turned out, the seller ended up throwing a few other track pieces in that they forgot to take photos of (a tunnel with road vehicle overpass and a drawbridge crossing. 

I did send the seller an message asking where they bought the orange bertie and whether they had any info on it. They got back to me a little while ago and just said they bought most of their collection in the UK. I'm not sure they had any idea the Bertie variant was peculiar at all. 

Rest assured, once I get the bertie in hand, I'll take some photos and report back on what it looks like and whether there's any tell tale markings inside or out.

Good eye C&D, glad someone here got it that could appreciate the possibility of what they got. Anxious to see the pictures and hear what you discover.

The closest thing was Algy from the annuals (before his redesign; See "I" in the infobox), but he was cream with red stripes and had a slanted front like the ERTL Bertie.
