From demonstrating a petrol-engined double-decker at the 1905 Commercial Motor Show to building huge 100-seat Olympians for the overseas market, the Bus and Coach Division of Leyland built thousands of vehicles for markets all over the world. At the forefront of vehicle design and development, Leyland produced ground-breaking vehicles such as the Atlantean, the UK’s first production rear-engined double-decker bus.

Through acquisition and merger, the majority of British vehicle manufacturers ended up under the Leyland banner, resulting in the creation of the mighty British Leyland Motor Corporation, whose subsequent fall from grace has been widely documented elsewhere.

This, the third in a series of books showcasing the products of the passenger division of Leyland since 1960, concentrates on double-deck buses and coaches and includes such mythological giants as the Atlantean, Olympian and Titan, among others. It contains 180 photographs, all of which are in colour, all with informative text and captured when the vehicles were in their operating heyday.
