MAKE LEYLAND
MODEL Titan PD2/37
YEAR 1962
BODY Weymann Orion H37/27F
OWNER Duncan Richardson, Ropley, Hants.
HISTORY New to Brighton Corporation in 1962.  The vehicle was Britain's first double deck one-man-operation bus, when converted in June 1966, despite being far from ideally suited to the role with the driver having to turn to serve customers through a small window onto the platform behind (see second photo below).

 

 

This is the passenger's view.  The driver has to twist round to serve the passengers.
