Product Description

AEC did not have the production capacity to meet the replacement requirements of London Transport, so an agreement was reached between AEC, London Transport and Leyland that the latter should supply a proportion of buses. The major requirement was that the chassis must be able to accept the standard RT body without serious alteration. Leyland offered their standard PD2 type steering, front and rear axles and revised 0600 engine, but the transmission was to be supplied by AEC. Production RTLs began to appear in December 1948 with bodies by Park Royal and MCW, numbered from RTL501 to allow for the 500 RTWs. Stock numbers ran from RTL501 to RTL1631. RTL 139, registration number KGK 803 as delivered in March 1949 with a Park Royal body and initially worked from Riverside Garage. The bus has been fully restored and can be seen at Cobham Bus Museum. Estimated release date 24th November
