Doncaster bought several batches of Leyland Titans in both short and long versions. Seen in Doncaster centre in 1973, the last year of Doncaster's independent existence, are 93, EDT702, a 1947 all Leyland Titan PD2/1 which was given a 1955 Roe body from former trolleybus 396 in 1963 (which involved conversion to half cab) and 177, 477HDT, a Leyland Titan PD3/4 new in 1962 with a Roe front entrance body.
93 carries the Doncaster red with cream band livery and would be withdrawn from service soon after this picture was taken In contrast 177 carries the candy stripe scheme devised by local art students this bus passed to the PTE in 1974
