Leyland TD1 Bus (Set 9 Model)

Instructions describing the building of a bus of 1920's innovative design 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 in 20 pages of text and colour photographs
