This is a beautifully illustrated history of the Leyland bus, one of the most important British buses of the twentieth century.
With full production histories and technical specifications for all the major models, A History of the Leyland Bus also includes the evolution of the Leyland Bus company, and tells the full story behind the iconic Leyland badge.
Including some previously unseen illustrations, the book covers a full company history - from beginnings as the Lancashire Steam Motor Company in 1886, to the acquisition by Volvo Buses in 1988.
Technical details of all the main models are given including the Lion, Titan and Olympic ranges.
Gearless buses and rear-engined double-deckers are covered as well as charabancs, trolleybuses, First World War military vehicles and overseas models.
A History of the Leyland Bus will be an essential guide to these much-treasured vehicles.
