LEYLAND Bus has broken into the North American market.
San Francisco-based sightseeing company Grayline, a subsidiary of Grosvenor Bus Lines, has ordered four Olympian double-deck coaches to be built in Britain for the 1986 tourist season.
They will he used on sightseeing duties in San Francisco and throughout California.
The three-axle 12m coaches will have full soft trim, air conditioning and 78 reclining seats. Power will be provided by Cummins LT10 engines driving through Voith fully automatic transmission.
Grosvenor's decision to buy Leyland was influenced by the successful performance of a batch of Leyland Atlanteans bought from New York three years ago.
