Leyland tiger OPS1

Post by Tadpole124 »

Hello,

I am after as much information as possible and hopefully pictures of the inside of a Leyland OPS1 half cab bus.
I am in the process of restoring one for the Tasmanian Transport Museum.

Wanting to know particullarly -
. how the passenger stop bell worked. Was it electric or manual? Pull cord?
. Did they come out origionally with top lights or were they added later?
. What lights, if any, were on the rear?
. Hand rails and where were they located?

Any internal pictures and information gratefully accepted.
Regards
Luke

Thank you :D

Discovered today that pretty much both horizontal beams above and below windows are rotted and screws wont grip even what is viable, so basically to do a full restoration all panels and windows would have to come off, then timbers be renewed.

Will concentrate on the inside for now.

Luke
