Tiger and Lioness, British Commercial Vehicle Museum
Two coaches from yesteryear parked outside the British Commercial Vehicle Museum at Leyland during the 2012 Leyland Transport Festival.

The coach nearest to the museum building (LOE 300) is a recently restored Leyland Royal Tiger with Duple Roadmaster coachwork, in the livery of Belle Vue Coaches.

Nearest to the camera (YT 3738) is a rare Leyland Lioness which was built in 1927 for HM King George V who used it as a shooting brake and also as transport for members of the royal staff. It was later sold to a coach company who converted it to a charabanc (which is how it is preserved today).
