The Leyland Atlantean Book Britain's Buses Series: Volume 6
PLEASE NOTE: This is a paperback reissue of the much-loved The Leyland Atlantean.
The Leyland Atlantean revolutionised bus layouts in Britain, setting a standard that has dominated double-deck designs for the last 60 years. Appearing in the late 1950s, when the bus market was dominated by the rear-entrance/front-engined double-deck design, it represented a hugely significant change, and was probably the last British designed and built bus to achieve massive sales worldwide, with the list of operators both at home and abroad being legion. In this book, Gavin Booth looks back at the development of the Leyland Atlantean from its origins in the 1950s and examines its importance over the past half-century.
