Crossley DD42, Luton Corporation Transport - 4 Park Square Dunstable Road This was the first Crossley delivered to Luton in 1946 and served Luton Corporation until scrapped in 1963. Following the war, major fleet requirements were necessary and 60 Crossley DD42/3Ts with automatic turbo transmission were ordered. These were seen as the natural replacement for the successful Daimler fluid semi-automatics which the pre-war drivers had become used to. There were to be 12 Highbridge and 48 Lowbridge vehicles but due to supply difficulties the order was reduced to 32. Despite their initial popularity these buses were to prove most unsuitable, as was found with many other municipalities. They were unreliable, with very heavy fuel consumption. In 1953 replacement AEC constant mesh gearboxes were fitted at the AEC repair depot at Southall in London.

Advantages: Interesting stuff about transport, good wheelchair access Disadvantages: High prices for what you get to see.
...London was like back in the 19th century, and they?ve got one of the first London buses on display at the beginning of the tour ? it?s horse drawn and is pretty cool to see if a little different from today?s buses.
You follow a suggested route through the museum by following the signs and this takes you past everything there is to see, but also sort of guides you at the same time so I think if you...
