Britain's Buses 5
Britain's Buses Volume 5 Focuses on the Leyland Olympian, a classic design from the 1980s and early 1990s and the last double-decker produced in volume by Leyland.
Olympians were operated in large numbers in many parts of Britain, from the north of Scotland to Cornwall and Devon. They were built for the National Bus Company, London Transport, Scottish Bus, and several passenger transport executives. They were also widely exported.
This publication - lavishly illustrated - will describe the vehicle and many of the fleets that operated it. Volvo acquired Leyland Bus in 1988 and re-engineered the Olympian as a Volvo product five years later. This part of the story also is covered.
