Beyond Reality: The Twilight Years

The Leyland National: was it the cause or a symptom?  The book gives nut and bolt description of the development of the later designs such as the Titan, the Panther,  the Olympic and much background on the choice of site for the new automated factory at Workington in the wilds of Cumbria.

A deeply absorbing story of the decline of Leyland , British leyland, via the National, to extinction. All  bus enthusiasts and students of history and engineering will find this highly interesting.

What were the many factors that caused the collapse of a world leader in Bus and Truck manufacture . Was it the National? Not entirely, the book tells the sorry, but fascinating story of the last days of Leyland, the closure of subsidiaries including AEC Roe and ECW, the fiasco surrounding Workington,  and the National.
