Titans in LondonEdit
When London Transport was established in 1933 it inherited a few hundred Leyland Titans from independent bus operators in London.
After World War II, London Transport bought more than 2,000 Leyland Titans specifically designed for use in London. They were designated as the RTL (1,631 built) and the wider variant RTW (500 built). In appearance they were very similar to the AEC-built RTs (4,825 built), the radiator shell being the most obvious difference (aside from the greater width of the RTWs).
