Loud Leylands!

This evening a couple of film clips taken aboard the two Leyland Olympians that were on offer in Blackpool just after the Easter weekend, as mentioned before, was probably the final time 'proper' Leyland will operate in public service within Blackpool as more and more Tridents flood in to fill the gaps. As luck would have it, each of the buses on offer that day had both the engine types avalible on Olympians, A719 YFS with the TL11, and D367 JJD with the more traditional Gardner 6LXB. 

  Firstly here is D367 JJD, the final Olympian ever to be bodied by ECW, heading outbound towards Marton Mere. 

And here we see A719 YFS heading inbound towards Blackpool with the TL11 whaling.
