Group Description

The Leyland Olympian was in production between 1980 - 1993 and was made to replace the Bristol VR, Leyland Fleetline and Leyland atlantean.

Leyland Olympians came in many varieties.

Eastern Coach Works (ECW)
Walter Alexander Coachbuilders
Northern Counties
East Lancashire Coachbuilders (East Lancs)
Charles H. Roe / Optare
Leyland Bus
Marshall - (A one-off order was placed by Bournemouth Transport in 1981 for twenty Olympians with bodywork by Marshall of Cambridge.)

In 1988 Leyland Bus passed to Volvo, who continued only the Olympian due to its vast number of outstanding orders. The completion of the final orders from Lothian Buses, China Motor Bus, Hong Kong Citybus and Singapore Bus Services saw the discontinuation of the Leyland Olympian and the closure of the manufacturing plant in Workington, England. The name would live on when Volvo launched the Volvo Olympian, which was built in Irvine, Scotland.

The Volvo Olympian replaced the Leyland Olympian the first one being built in 1992 and put into production in March 1993
