manager of Coventry Transport Department, Mr. R. A. Fearnley, are embodied in 40 new DaimlerM.C.W. double-deckers, delivery of which commenced last week. The vehicles are 58-seaters—the standard capacity for Coventry's post-war fleet— and are 7 ft. 6 ins, wide, as many of the roads over which they have to operate are narrow.
The buses incorporate a new Daimler frontal styling: the fluted radiator has been abandoned, but a plated motif bearing the flutes provides the maker's distinctive mark. Signals to the driver to stop or start are given by a bell from the lower saloon and a buzzer from the upper deck, so that the driver can tell from which part of the bus the signal is made.
