In the 1950s Sydney's Department of Government Transport began the move away from Double Deckers by purchasing large numbers of undefloor engined Leyand and AEC buses which could be operated one man, thus saving on conductors wages. Fleet number 3308, an AEC Regal IV, with monocontrol gearbox and 11.3 litre motor, represents the later body style with sliding standee windows.
