London RTW Double Deck Bus
The London RTW was based on the successful RT but used an wider 8ft version of the famous body design. All the RTW's were built of Leyland Titan chassis rather than the traditional AEC Regents favoured for the original RT's. In all 500 examples were built by Leyland Motors between 1948 & 1950
The RTW's were Initially confined to outer London suburban routes due to concerns about their extra width, but after the completion of successful trails they moved to some of the capital busiest central routes were they continued in service until their final withdrawal in May 1966.
Many examples of the class were sold on and continued in service with independent operators across the UK for several more years.
The first OOC RTW model was released in mid August 2006.
