Phil Murphy from New Zealand has sent us these 2 photos of his Leyland Royal Tiger Worldmaster.

He says "Attached is a photo of my recently acquired bus, which I hope to restore as best I can. It has New Zealand Motor Bodies coachwork with 47 seats. Was new to the Dunedin City Transport (DCT) in New Zealand in1966 and retired with 2nd owner about 2002. Quite sad looking but with its alloy body little if any rust.

It can be seen on YouTube."

VR5742, Manchester Corporation Transport No. 28.
A 1930 Leyland Tiger TS2 with Manchester Corporation B32R body.
The Leyland Tiger introduced in 1927, was a single-deck version of the very successful TD series Titan double-decker.
The body was completely rebuilt in 1937 and became an ambulance between 1940 and 1947 when it was again modified to a city centre canteen for bus crews lasting a further 20 years.
