Lysholm-Smith torque-converter removed & converted to 4sp constant mesh by Metro by 31.07.1939; Prototype in Metro Leyland Lion re-engining program: chassis extended, re-engined Leyland 166/1 & fitted with OPS1-style radiator 20.01.1947; De-registered by 26.06.1958; Reported in one source as having been sold to Carilla Bus Service, but that the sale was cancelled due to major engine failure. This source further reports that it was returned to the MTT and after being unsuccessfully offered for re-sale on 28.09.1959, it was cannibalised for spare parts by 21.03.1960, and the body sold to the Mt Marshall Road Board; However, another source suggests that it was loaned to Carilla (rather than sold). A photograph exists of (37) at Carilla Depot showing it registered DR2367 but still carrying fleet no (37); This second theory is supported by the published memoirs of the operator, which lists (37) as the first bus loaned under the agreement between the MTT & Carilla. Whilst these memoirs recount mishaps and breakdowns, specific mention of a major breakdown involving (37) is conspicuously absent
