These buses were particularly successful and had a long life on the roads of the city, serving through World War II...
This bus was brought into service on the 12th July 1935 as number 125 of the new fleet of Leyland TD4’s working in the streets of Portsmouth. Originally it did not have an open top, this alteration was made in June 1955.
This fleet of buses was particularly successful and had a long life on the roads of the city. They served through World War II, when bus services were reduced because the city’s population was smaller due to military service and evacuation.
This particular bus ran right up until 1971. The bus is painted in the original Portsmouth Corporation colours of maroon and custard.
Redundant Portsmouth buses were sold all over the UK and all over the world, including Australia and Mauritius.
