The forward control Leyland Titan PD2 featured a front mounted engine designed to carry double-decker bus bodywork. Their production dated from 1927-1942 and resumed after World War II from 1945-1969. Because of their size, the PD2s were originally classed as the non-London 26 footer version, considered unsuitable for use in the capital. In 1950 some revisions to the construction and use regulations meant that the 8 foot wide vehicles no longer required special permission to operate in central London and the maximum length for double deckers was increased to 27 feet. As a result, Leyland raised a new set of variant codes for the Titans, namely from PD2/10 to PD2/13, these having a wheelbase of 16’ 5”. The standard Leyland body was also revised. Within this range of new codes was the PD2/12 which was 8’ wide with vacuum brakes. Known as the ‘Farington’ style, the chassis and bodywork were both by Leyland. Making its sixth appearance in the unmistakable maroon and white colour scheme of Edinburgh Corporation, our model is bursting with detail. Running as the Number 29 to Comely Bank via Frederick Street and Stockbridge, the advertising panels are promoting Weston’s quality biscuits on one side, McDowell’s Bread on the other and that famous Northern department store Binns on the back. The colourful City and Royal Burgh of Edinburgh crest adorns the sides of the double decker and also features on the back. The wine red interior and seating accommodated the fifty eight passengers of our bus, which is registered JSF 660. A firm favourite with bus collectors, this latest Edinburgh Corporation livery is sure to please our Scottish enthusiasts particularly.
