Edinburgh famous "monsterous masses of shivering tin", to quote a city councillor of the nineteen fifties, had long lives. Two are seen here in Portobello; nearer the camera is 537, LWS537, while the driver clambers into the cab of slightly older 439, LFS439. Both buses are Leyland Titan PD2/20 with lightweight MCW bodywork.
Over 300 similar vehicles were bought for tramway replacement by Edinburgh in the years 1954-1957.
