Details: The eight Leyland Titan breakdown tenders bought by London Transport in 1962-1964 were divided equally between the Permanent Way and Rolling Stock departments, those with the latter being recognisable by having a sliding door near the front of each side. This view of 1279LD taken at Neasden Depot on 14th March 1970 shows the neatly-organised interior and also the translucent roof panels fitted. Tail-lifts were fitted to all of the Titans but could only be operated when the rear doors were opened. Note that the doors had 270 degree hinges, allowing them to rest along the bodysides when open. One final point is that the tail-lift is badged as being a product of USI. Permanent Way department 1275LD had a Burtonwood tail-lift, but information on the others is not available.
