516: Leyland National 2 Suburban Express
 Padbus 516 Leyland National 2 Suburban Express
516 (YXI 4893) Leyland National 2 Suburban Express DP47F
The Suburban Express version of the Leyland National had a high level, flat floor. The Padbus management once had the opportunity to travel on the prototype and found it to be a far more civilised vehicle than the standard Leyland National.
Although it never went into series production, Padbus decided to build one for themselves for use on Oxford-Carterton Express. It entered service in 1997 and was withdrawn in 2005.
Modified EFE diecast.
