UK Leyland Tiger PS1(CRN 80) featured in "Call The Midwife"

Postby drpeps » Sat Jun 21, 2014 2:11 pm

I have just watched Episode 7 (Series 3) of Call the Midwife, and an old Leyland Tiger PS1 half cab featured quite prominently in the program.

I have found out that it is a 1946 chassis, put into service in 1949. It carries the UK registration CRN 80.

For the TV program it was made to look suitably shabby, and had a complete respray afterwards to return it to its former good looks.
