A Daimler-Benz O317 with Ludewig one and a half deck body, new in 1966 and presented to Leicester in 1978 by its twin town of Krefeld in Germany. It then acquired the UK registration EFP521T. The same year in return, Krefeld received Leicester 85, a 1964 Leyland double decker with East Lancs body.
The sign on the side of the bus reads "Presented to Leicester City Transport by the Krefelder Verkehrs A.G."
The bus was moved to Aire, Scotland when Grampian Bus Company took over Leicester City Bus in the mid 1990s. Since then the annually published list for preserved buses show that it is now owned by Hills of Aberdeen.
