Recent comments about St Enoch Square (here) prompted speculation about Beardmore building taxis as well as ships. GCT 318 was the only 1930 Leyland Titan to be fitted with a "heavy oil engine" manufactured by Beardmore as an experiment, and GCT ordered 30 to be installed in the forthcoming Albion Venturer SP81 buses in 1935. 1-30 had Gardner engines and 31-50 had Beardmore 6-cylinder engines built at Dalmuir but production was ceased due to reliability problems and by 1940, all had been replaced by Leyland.

Coronation car 1274 in March 1960 at the Burnside terminus of route 18, about to return to Springburn. The tramway gives every indication of at one time continuing further along this road, but I understand it did not.

Coronation car 1189 has arrived at Partick on a short working of route 26 in March 1960. The route on to Dalmuir goes past at the end of the road and in the opposite direction, in front of the car, is Partick depot.

A Coronation car, probably at the Scotstoun terminus of route 16, in March 1960. The driver appears to be in the act of changing the blind for the return journey to Keppochil Road. This appears to be a stub off the main line to Dalmuir, which obviously never went beyond the low railway bridge in the background.

72.
Looking in the other direction from the previous shot of Coronation car 1245, it will be seen that the stub originally led to Whitevale Depot, the building of which is on the left of the road. This depot had closed in 1922 and the whole area has now been redeveloped.

This official GCT picture was taken about 1935 and shows the rear platform of an open stair Titan (not identified).In the background are several closed stair buses and at least one other open stair one.

Glasgow CT Daimler CVD6 DS43, FYS348, was the first of a batch of 43 to enter service from 1948, with forward entrance and rear exit bodies built at the bus works on Metal Section frames.

Interior view of Glasgow DS43, FYS348, looking towards the rear. The GCT "route plate" (running number) holder can be seen on the window pillar, and was also fixed on the offside of buses behind the driver's cab. Metal plates were used and eventually replaced by plastic ones until the practice was ceased . The route number was then painted on the back of the metal timetable board and was intended to be displayed by the driver on all journeys, to enable a timekeeper to identify each bus on the service, and its home garage.

A forward view of Glasgow Albion Venturer B107, EGA94, illustrating the art deco look which was still being added to deliveries after the war. The ceiling panels were a less complicated design than featured in the Coronation trams, but the provision of interior mirrors, alhambrinal panelling and "jazzy" moquette combined to produce a welcoming interior. The matching right hand "mirror" was a window to allow the driver to view through the bus to the rear platform.

After seeing all the ex-GCT Worldmaster buses in Southend, it prompted me to post a poor view of one in Glasgow: LS24, FYS695, in the last few months of service. By this time, the 24 and 30 services were the only ones where the remaining Worldmasters were used due to low bridges. This scene in Burnhouse Street, off Gairbraid Avenue with the conductor guiding the driver to reverse would soon be over. With a running time of about 8 minutes from end to end, service 24 must have been hated by the crews for sheer boredom.

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.

XGA17J, LA519: GCT bought 822 Atlanteans and 16 Leyland Panthers all with Alexander bodies between 1962 and 1973. Representing the intakes around 1970, the fad at the time was for two-door OMO double deckers. The exit doors were seldom used and disliked by crews and passengers and were eventually removed and a bench seat fitted in the space. The orange dot was to indicate that the bus was OMO. "Lazy" destination displays were meant to make the driver's duties easier!
