Leyland Buses Since 1955


    As with many of the leading bus and coach manufacturers in Britain, Leyland built a wide range of vehicles. Some of the types - such as the PD2, the PD3 and the Atlantean - were built in large numbers but others were built in much smaller quantities. Whilst the former may well have been featured in books specifically dealing with that model, many of the less-well known types have been less well covered. In the post-war era, for example, Leyland manufactured such models as the Victory Mark 2 exclusively exported to Hong Kong and the Leyland-DAB articulated bus under the auspices of its Danish DAB subsidiary, as well as numerous single-deck bus and coach models, such as the Royal Tiger, the Tiger Cub, the Leopard, the Lion and the Panther before the much more prosaically named National. This book is an 80pp colour album examining Leyland's bus and coach production between the mid-1950s and the demise of the name in the 1980s. The 1000-word introduction examines the history of Leyland and its products over those years whilst the c85 colour illustrations explore the variety of both double- and single-deck models - familiar and less familiar - constructed by the company.
