Bus enthusiasts in South Yorkshire will be particularly pleased to see this refreshing release of the Leyland Royal Tiger coach, decorated in the colour scheme of bright leaf green and cream of the Mexborough & Swinton Traction Co. Ltd. 

The company, founded in October 1912, was based in Rawmarsh near Rotherham in the then West Riding of Yorkshire and they introduced the Leyland Tigers towards the end of their highly successful trolleybus era in the early 1950s. The company went on right until the late 1960s, developing a close relationship with Yorkshire Traction, which they then became part of before both were consumed into the National Bus Company in 1969.

The Leyland Royal Tigers, used by many of the major bus companies were manufactured between 1950 and 1954 and featured an underfloor engine on a heavyweight bus or coach chassis.
