Leyland Olympian/ECW
43004 and 43004A

Keighley and District

This model has been released in two versions, with a third version existing as a pre-production sample only.

Firstly a standard release (43004) this version had a yellow line on the side of the bus but no yellow line on the front (see picture below).

Secondly the variation of the standard release (43004A). This was released to the trade at the same time as the standard version and differed from the standard in that it had a yellow stripe on the front but no yellow stripe on the side (I do not have a photograph the variation at this time).

Thirdly the pre-production sample (see picture below) had a yellow stripe on both the side and the front.

All other details on the buses apart from the yellow line appear to be identical.

43004 - Standard Release
The picture below shows the standard version of the model, you will note there is no yellow line above the windscreen.
