Leyland TD1 Bus


◊  A Set 9 Model  ◊


ModelPlan by Michael J. Walker


A bus of innovative design in the 1920's, with a low overall height allowing it to pass under low bridges, and  low loading height which allowed for easier boarding and alighting.

An offset top-deck gangway with four-seat benches gave the upper saloon a distinctive layout, and other features included pneumatic (in place of solid rubber) tyres and a four-speed sliding-mesh gearbox which transferred power from a 6.8 litre OHC petrol engine to an offset differential on the rear axle.

The model has many very realistic details yet can be built with the contents of a 1950's Set No. 9.

Built and described as separate subconstructions which are brought together in the final assembly.
