Details: Of 9 breakdown tenders based on the Leyland Titan PD3 chassis delivered in the 1960s, 1416LD (JLA72D) was the least unattractive!. The other vehicles (such as 1279LD) featured a stepped roof line, resulting in a most ungainly appearance. The nature of their duties made them quite long-lived, serving up to 19 years, and three of the type have survived into preservation. After initial use by the Signal Engineers department, 1416LD was transferred to Camberwell garage for bus breakdown recovery duties, and it could often be seen in the company of 1456MR as here. 1416LD was photographed at the North Weald rally in June 2000.
