Seen here on the pits at Larkfield garage is one of Glasgow's first batch of tin-front Leylands. These comprised, I believe, the only batch of PD2/25s built and were followed by a lot more of the eight foot wide PD2/24 model. I didn't record the identity of this one at the time and it's not possible to identify it now. The batch was L24-48 (FYS 647-671) and they had Alexander H32/28R bodies to Weymann design.
All entered service in 1956 (although some were delivered the previous year) and the last examples were withdrawn by 1971. No less than fourteen of the batch became driver training vehicles, hence the difficulty of identification!
