The Aldershot and District Traction Company was the largest buyer of the Dennis Loline, built only a few miles from Aldershot in the Dennis Bros factory, Guildford UK
The first Lolines were basically the Bristol Lodekka built under licence by Dennis, and incorporating some useful design changes.
Loline III, the subject of this film, had many purely Dennis features including a newly designed 5 speed constant mesh gearbox. Number 503 has a Gardner 6LW motor and Weymann body.
The film is of a re-enactment of a run on the picturesque and once very busy route, no. 23 from Guildford Bus Station to Ewhurst via Shalford, Bramley and Wonersh through Surrey villages and countryside
