A splendid Leyland `Atlantean` which was carefully converted to open topper format as a promotional bus for Worthington`s of Burton on Trent. Its height is within the EU height limit. Subsequently it was repainted in orange and modified for Easyjet; it has recently been fitted with a luxury bar to the lower deck, comprising refrigerators, coolers and services for mobile bar or ice cream parlour.
The `Atlantean` is the first of the new generation of rear-engined British double deckers and is consequently the best developed; its relative mechanical and electrical simplicity makes for reliable operation. This example has enjoyed a high standard of maintenance through its life and will make an efficient working partner in a new career in catering.
