Wallasey Corporation Motors fleet No. 54, registration AHF850. 54 was one of 23 Leyland Titan PD2/1 models delivered in 1951. The conventional 1937 bodywork is by Metro-Cammel of Birmingham.

Wallasey Corporation concentrated on an integrated bus & ferry service from Seacombe and New Brighton to all parts of the borough of Wallasey. A manual clock indicator can be found on the rear platform, set by the conductor to show the time of the ferry sailing that the bus was due to connect with.

Number 54 was withdrawn from service in 1972 having passed into the ownership of the M.P.T.E. in December 1969, having been renumbered 254. Upon withdrawal the bus was purchased by a Mr C Greenwood and owned by him until 2004. The bus then became part of the collection at Wirral Transport museum, funded through New Wallasey Regeneration.
