Monocontrol Bus AKA Revolutionary Bus (1956, British Pathe)
Leeds Corporation receives the first of a new fleet of AEC Regent Vs whose controls are so simple that a one-legged man can drive them. Chris Hough notes this was "LCT'S biggest single batch of buses which were lightweight buses with 60 seat Roe bodywork bought for tramway replacement duties. The one legged man featured in the clip was Alderman John Rafferty the then Chair of the Transport Committee on the Council. The item was filmed at Torre Road depot in Leeds".
