ELC8 - LEYLAND PD1/3
EAST LANCS BODY
RIBBLE "WHITE LADY"
Second Series

At the original 1948 launch the trade press stated that a fleet of 50 double deck coaches had been ordered but it was to be another two years before the balance arrived.

They caused a surprise as they were built by a bodybuilder which Ribble had not previously used.

The 1950 deliveries comprised a further 20 vehicles:
1231 – 1250 DCK 202-221 bodies by East Lancashire Coachbuilders of Blackburn on Leyland PD2/3 chassis.

They were of similar specification but were 4 bay instead of 5 with two piece platform doors.

They entered service alongside their predecessors and like them were downgraded to buses from February 1961.

For full details of the Ribble `White Lady` a book has recently been published by the Leyland Society in the Leyland Fleet series entitled RIBBLE DOUBLE DECK COACHES.

Several vehicles were sold on and a list is included in the book.

Master for the model designed and built by Tony Asquith.
