T Type (B15) - Leyland Titan
This is one of many illustrated classic London Bus guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic London Red Bus and Routemaster art featured in this guide please click here.
The first production Titans (T class) were delivered in August 1978, and following the customary period of staff familiarisation and training, they entered service the following December. Fitted with 66-seat (22 downstairs, 44 up) Park Royal bodies, the Titans were powered by Gardner 6LXB engines and featured a relatively low flat floor-line in the interests of passenger comfort. Unfortunately, production of the Titan was hardly underway when Leyland announced the closure of the Park Royal Vehicles. The first batch of 250Ts were completed but thereafter production was transferred to Leyland's Workington plant and deliveries were interrupted. Production of the Titan ceased in November 1984.
