Caught my eye for unusually short wheelbase. BKD 679 = early 1936 Liverpool issue, BXD early 1935 London.

As it says "School Bus" on the vehicle, should not the classification be changed to Bus-School??

Depends whether it's an ordinary bus doing a school run or a special for schools only. Which is a verdict way beyond me, although I'm not aware of English buses being special school builds in the same way as US.

Looks like a London Transport Leyland Cub class C.


since the registration numbers are only 10 vehicles apart. These little vehicles were used in the country districts to replace a motley collection of small buses owned by various companies taken over by LT or its predecessors in the 20s/30s.

They were, in their turn, replaced by the rear engined Cub class CR,

and the Guy class GS small buses.

It is not a school bus, just a bus being used on a school journey.

About 22 examples C16 to C75 listed as being at Amersham (film location) about this time, 1938.
