Here we see the Leyland double decker model Atlantean on both coast. As originally purchased by MaBSTOA and later sold to Gray Line of San Francisco

Technically not operated by any city agency or private operator but two British AEC double deckers from London Transport made it to New York City sometime in 1951-1952 for publicity.

Here we see them at Grand Army Plaza, Manhattan (across from the Plaza Hotel) attracting attention and later traversing one of Manhattan's streets. Note the two New York City Omnibus' TDH-4509 buses standing by watching the parade.

A very distinguished visitor from Jolly Olde London Town, getting to know some local "Noo Yawkers", 1973 (the rainy, gloomy weather, so typical of London, truly makes this vintage double-decker look right at home).......
