OXFORD DIECAST NQM005 N SCALE Queen Mary Bus Boroline

The Leyland PD3 was introduced in the late 1950s to fulfil an industry need for longer buses with less frequency. Based on the PD2, the new PD3 version was increased to the new legal lenght of 30 feet, with a width of 8 feet. This extra length over its predecessor earned it the familiar name 'Queen Mary', which stuck! Southdown Motor Services, who worked chiefly along the south coast, were the first to take an allocation of the new double deckers, delivered to Portsmouth. The Leyland PD3 was produced between 1957 and 1967 and during that time Southdown took 285 Northern Counties bodied versions featuring full fronts and a front entrance. This lead the way for other UK operators to follow suit and many were exported to British colonies - including Hong Kong.
