Edinburgh bought a solitary Leyland Leopard PSU3/2R in 1962, 101, YSG101. This was fitted with an early Alexander Y type body to the design of the Edinburgh general manger this included three doors with access by the rear where passengers paid a seated conductor.
The bus was later converted to a conventional front entrance layout. Like many of Edinburgh's oddities it ended up in the coach fleet and in this guise it served on the airport service for a number of years. It is seen in early morning autumnal sun at Waverley Bridge, the starting point for the service to Turnhouse Airport.
101 has been preserved.
