In 1929, the London General Omnibus Company introduced three new vehicle types, the 26ft AEC Regal coded T, the 27ft three axle Renown LT (long T), and the 25ft Regent ST (short T). (The letter 'T' was the next in alphabetical order after the S type of 1920, though the letters Q and R were adopted out of sequence.) When, in 1932, the permissible length of two axle double deckers was increased to 26ft, AEC produced a Regent with an extended wheelbase of 16ft 3ins coded by the LGOC as STL for short T long, which, out of context, looks decidedly curious.
