Leyland '"Titan" Double Decker Bus
Found this Leyland bus parked outside the Museum of Transport in Boyle Street Manchester which has a great collection of buses from the past inside its Grade II listed bus garage.

This Leyland  bus does not have air conditioning, the latest suspension, the entrance does not rise up and down or is there any discernable sound insulation, but what it does have is oddles of character.

It has  a seating capacity of 62, 28 in the lower saloon and and 34 in the  upper saloon and at a guess a few more for standing.

The bus was owned by Bolton Transport, from the famous Lancashire cotton town.
Leyland '"Titan" Double Decker Bus - Rear Hop on Entrance
It has the lucky number of  77. The coat of arms has the motto 'Supera Moras' which in Latin  means "Overcome delays".
We think this bus is a Leyland Titan. If anyone has any details on the type of bus this really is, with any anecdotes about their use, they would be gratefully be accepted in the feedback below.


Awaiting your feedback :-)
