Here she is 913 DTT, making it all the way to 50 years old. This weekend Terry Bennett joined with many other local enthusiasts to celebrate this momentous occasion with a trip on her old haunts around along the Devon coastal roads.
Of course 913 was one of the very earliest Atlanteans and marked a huge step forward in bus design. The whole concept of one man operation was revolutionary with a single door at the front, with the engine out the back. Indeed for my 'Engineering Diploma' course I studied the Leyland Atlantean design in depth as I thought it was such an achievement in modernisation, that no doubt will now be timeless.
So Happy Birthday 913, hopefully many more happy years motoring!
