Meccano model of Leyland "Titan" TD1 double-decker bus by Geoff Wright

Meccano model of Leyland

From Geoff’s notes -

Leyland “Titan” TD1 Double Decker Bus

The challenge was to build the model using only the contents of a 1954-1961 No. 9 set which included a wide selection of the newly introduced Triangular Flexible Plates, but not as yet Narrow Strips.

At one-sixteenth full size – 3/4” to the foot – this model is built to the same scale as my TD7. The prototype first appeared in 1927 and pioneered the low height layout with dropped side gangway upstairs, which enabled the overall height to be kept to about thirteen feet. Its revolutionary design resulted in sales running into thousands, and was a significant factor in ensuring the eventual demise of the tramcar in many cities.

The model depicts the first version of the bus, as supplied to Thames Valley, which originally had an open staircase at the rear. Due to the parts restriction, no attempt has been made to model the seats. Unfortunately 2” pulleys and tyres are considerably overscale, so recourse has had to be made to Road Wheels 197 which preclude twin rears.

However, it has the side gangway, characteristic front destination indicator box, curved-in lower side panels, and underbody lifeguards. The handrails feature right angle bend employing Cord Anchoring Springs for the purpose. The chassis is fitted with suspension including a representation of the front shackles, and steering.

Problems still to be solved are the connection of the steering gear to the steering wheel, and perhaps a partial representation of the stairs. At this late stage further progress involves “borrowing” parts, especially nuts & bolts from wherever they can best be spared! Having “borrowed” all possible nuts & bolts, on taking it to a recent meeting, I was amazed to find six nuts and bolts lying in the bottom of the carrying case! And no immediate sign of where they had come from!

The model has been written up in the Runnymede Meccano Guild February 2007 Magazine, and the North East London Meccano Club May 2007 Newsletter & Review. The Holy Trinity Meccano Club kindly awarded the model the “Noel Ta’Bois Trophy at their April 2007 meeting.
