An illustrated guide to the postwar Leyland Titan

Photo © Chris Hough. Please do not re-post without permission.

Edinburgh bought a final batch of rear entrance Leyland Titans in 1962. These were PD2A/30s with Alexander bodywork. All had the Edinburgh version of the original Leyland concealed radiator rather than the later fibre glass "St Helens front". 614, YWS614, is seen in Newcastle while on hire to Tyne and Wear PTE in 1976 when that organisation was having a vehicle crisis.
Some of these buses would be sold to Eastern Scottish and run for a short time in their green livery. The white area on the side panel is an illuminated advert something that enjoyed a brief vogue in the nineteen sixties
