LHs By Original Owner

Last Updated : November 2016 (Under construction)

Welcome to the LH section of the website. I have been keeping records of the whereabouts of LH single-decker survivors for more than twenty years now, and you will find below a list of companies who bought LHs from new and for each company there is a separate list of known survivors with details of when they were last reported. Please feel free to contact me to update any information, contribute a photo (recent or otherwise) or to add a new survivor to the list.

While several well-known sources are acknowledged as contributors to data in this website, this is a personal list which I have been compiling from very widely-spread contacts over a long period and it is those people who I particularly thank for their kindness. Specific acknowledgements should go to The PSV Circle for the wonderful work they do to record vehicle movements in the UK and around the world, Buses magazine for the excellent UK coverage in Fleet News over many decades and the Bristol Interest Circle run by my friend Allan Macfarlane who have documented the slow demise of the LH over a period of thirty years.

For a list of all operators of LHs, both new and secondhand, visit the Bristol Operator Cross-Reference page.
