Rubber Mounting Bushes –
Leyland 600 Engine for PD2s, PS2s (and maybe PD3s)
An initiative we
(Sydney Bus Museum) are urgently pursuing is the
production of rubber mounting bushes for the Leyland

We have 6
such buses, one being re-engined right now and it
needs 16 such bushes per bus (4 mounting struts, two
ends each, two bushes per end). Each end takes 2
dissimilar size bushes.
We’ve had a quote of about $1600 for the mould
tooling and a price of about $10 each for the rubber
The number we order is dependent on what interest
there is from elsewhere in the world in taking some
bushes for future use. We would only do one
production run, as the price drops greatly for large
I wonder could you try to establish what demand
there might be from your owners?
We suggest a putative price of about $16 per bush
plus 10% GST and shipping.

Personally I’m pleased with the
quality. Perfect dimensions, thanks to the
toolmaker’s allowance for shrinkage in the mould,
nice clean finish and a very good firm feel. Shore
of 70A has been held.
Very professional job all told.
I’ll keep you posted on price.
The photos show them straight
from the mould without any trimming of flash.
Price negotiations are going on
with the moulder and will depend on order size, and
of course we will press the impoverished charity
I’ll keep you posted.
Please advise how many sets you

Armed with expressions of
interest we can decide on as large an order as
possible to keep price down.

Station 85th Anniversary Coach Festival
10-12 March 2017
In March 2017, Victoria Coach Station will be
celebrating its 85th birthday with a
three-day Coach Festival from 10th to 12th
March. Featuring vehicles from every decade since
the grand opening on 10th March 1932, the
Festival will showcase coaches, artefacts and
presentations on the history of coach travel in
Britain. There will be stalls from current
operators, as well as a number of competitions
raising money for Transport for London’s chosen
charity: The Transport Benevolent Fund. The most
modern coaches will also be on display and available
for inspection and boarding, alongside preserved
vehicles dating from the late 1920s to the 1990s.
coach station, originally conceived, constructed and
operated by a consortium of coach operators coming
together under the banner of London Coastal Coaches
Ltd, is now owned and operated by Transport for
London. TfL are keen to celebrate the history of the
coach station and also to demonstrate the continuing
development of the facilities within the coach
station to meet the needs of the much larger and
complex vehicles now using VCS and the people who
travel within them. The imposing 1930s’ Art Deco
building on the corner of Buckingham Palace Road and
Elizabeth Street is still at the heart of the
operation providing the main passenger entrance with
areas containing public facilities for enquiries and
booking, seated waiting areas and a range of cafes,
shops and snack bars. This building and the canopy
behind covering a significant part of the coach
departure area are Grade 2 listed by Historic
TV&GWOT are assisting TfL in organising the event by
encouraging the owners of preserved coaches to bring
their vehicles to this iconic and nostalgic setting
to celebrate its 85th Anniversary.
Whether your coach was originally operated by one of
the principal express coach companies or possibly
‘on-hire’ to one of these companies at peak holiday
weekends, please download and complete an entry
form available from
www.tvagwot.org.uk . Forms may be submitted to
TV&GWOT by post or email to the addresses given on
Vehicles on display will be parked in Lanes 1-4
which are at the eastern end of the coach departure
area and nearest to the main passenger entrance and
facilities. The display area will be cordoned off
from the operational area to allow free circulation
of the public around the preserved coaches.
