The Leyland Titan

A Titan on route 321 in Eltham High Street on a wet day 6 July 2001 The 321 is run by Central buses from New Cross (NX). The most notable thing about the Titan is the offset rear window, which makes it very distinctive. A few of the Titans (T) are still in service on routes along with other buses. Several others are in use as training buses.

The Titan was bought 'off the peg', but because of the disaster with the Fleetlines (DMS) which were unsuitable for London. London Transport were fully involved with its development. It all started in 1973 with the B15, called London's bus of tomorrow.  The first production Titan was delivered to London Transport in 1978.
