Leyland Titan

There were many designations of the Titan chassis that was in production in the UK from 1927-1969 with only a three-year break during WW2. This chassis is not to be confused with the later (1970's) rear-engined Titan B15.

  Registration number EO 8890, this Leyland Titan PD2/3 with Park Royal H30/26R bodywork undergoes a tilt test at LTE Chiswick Works on the 20th January 1949. The 26' long PD2 was not intended for London and this example apparently went to Barrow Corporation (the first of a batch of 60 delivered between 1949 & '51) and then, along with at least some of its sibling vehicles, to Merthyr Tydfil Corporation in 1961 - it was withdrawn in 1966. The gentleman on the right is William (Bill) Davis, Works Manager at PRV, and to the left is a Ministry of Transport Inspector (probably); the same man appears in the tilt test on the AEC Regent page.  (Photo kindly provided by Nigel Davis.)
