Whitrope Summit

All very 1960's - the driver's 'office' on the Leyland railbus see image 52225. One of the compromises of the design is clear: the central driving position left very narrow passages for passenger entrance and exit on both left and right sides. There was also a risk of unpleasant interaction between passengers and driver, similar to the abuse occasionally received by bus drivers.
