This is an Oxford Diecast bus in mint condition ( see photo ), the box is in mint condition. New tooling in the Oxford Commercials series adds a new double decker the 1:76 scale Leyland Titan PD2/12, which we are delighted to have in the popular Midland Red livery. The forward control Leyland Titan PD2 featured a front mounted engine designed to carry double-decker bus bodywork. Their production dated from 1927-1942 and resumed after World War II from 1945-1969. Because of their size, the PD2s were originally classed as the non London 26 footer version, considered unsuitable for use in the capital. However, in 1950 some revisions to the construction and use regulations meant that the 8 foot wide vehicles no longer required special permission to operate in central London and the maximum length for double deckers was increased to 27 feet. As a result, Leyland raised a new set of variant codes for the Titans, namely from PD2/10 to PD2/13, these having a wheelbase of 16' 5. The standard Leyland body was also revised. Within this range of new codes was the PD2/12 which was 8' wide with vacuum brakes. The chassis and bodywork were both by Leyland. Our model, in the Red colour scheme of Midland Red registered JBC 989, is travelling on route 625 to Loughborough via Mountsorrell.
