Bristol LWL / ECW Bus
LWL2
The Bristol/ECW LWL bus was introduced in 1951 following an increase in length and width for PSV`s.

Initially the Bristol `L` was lengthened to 30` and designated `LL` closely followed by 8` wide versions as LWL`s. Several operators had the LWL body on 7`6" chassis. An extra row of seats increased the seating capacity to 39.

The changes took place quickly and reference to photographs are needed to confirm a particular model. Quick reference for 8` wide bodies are a 3 part destination box and a divided rear window.

Below is a selection of known operators with Fleet and Registration No`s. This does not include 8` wide bodies on 7`6" chassis.
