In the early post-war years when coachbuilders Park Royal Vehicles and Weymann were at full capacity and unable to fully meet London Transportís enormous requirements for new RT buses, tenders to supply were sent to other manufacturers. Saunders Engineering of Angleseyand Cravens Railway Carriage & Wagon Co. of Sheffield built 300 and 120 RTs respectively. Saunders RTs were similar to standard RTs in many respects and were interchangeable with the Park Royal and Weymann bodies on overhaul, but Cravens RTs were quite different. The 5-bay window design could not be mixed with standard bodies at overhaul, and although well built, all except one were sold when only seven years old. Cravens RTs were quickly bought by independent bus operators, glad to acquire youthful London-spec vehicles in excellent condition and gave long reliable service to their new owners in many parts of the UK. Today two complete Cravens RTs are preserved in full running order, RT1431 and RT1499, both with Ensignbus. Features include a new single-piece body, detailed interior with new seating and handrails, and a new chassis.
