9780711034563: Daimler Fleetline

Produced between 1960 and 1980, the Daimler Fleetline was the Coventry-based Daimler's design of rear-engined, predominantly double-deck bus produced to compete with the slightly earlier Leyland Atlantean. During the twenty years that the model was produced, several thousand examples were constructed. The single biggest customer for the type was London Transport. Other major customers included Birmingham Corporation/West Midlands PTE and Greater Manchester PTE. Municipal operators of the type were widespread, from Aberdeen and Dundee through Bradford and Huddersfield in Yorkshire to Walsall in the Midlands and Cardiff in Wales, amongst numerous others. A number of major independent operators also acquired the type, and a significant number were also exported, with Hong Kong a particularly lucrative market both for new buses and later for second-hand ex-London Transport examples. Although it's now almost thirty years since the last of the type was built, a handful can still be found in service whilst other examples have entered preservation.
