Central SMT

Single-Deckers : Guy Arab

As mentioned in the Double-deckers section, Central ordered the Guy Arab in both double- and single-deck format. Earlier versions of the single-decker had typical front-mounted engines and half-cab bodies with rear entrances. Later examples, however, were under-floor engined and had unusual Alexander bodies with full fronts and rear or centre entrances. These lasted in service until 1967.

This list covers acquisitions since 1950, anything earlier lying outside the current scope of this website.
