Well this one isn't really a pairing, but more like a half-ing
#56a trolley bus, with it's upper deck removed. In addition windows were added and for a bit extra play-value, the pole arms
were hinged so that they can be raised and lowered and also pivot.

That looks good too.
How did you make the roof?
The original one is too short isn´t it?

Yes you are correct Stephan, the original roof is indeed too short. I cut the roof at the front, approximately where the rear pillar of the first window, on the left hand side is. The front section of the roof was then epoxied in place and then the rear roof section, and then I made a patch to take up the space, using a bit of scrap metal and smoothing it over with epoxy.
