RE: Liverpool Corporation
Apparently they were looking to run these buses on Limited Stop services but this never happened. Originally they were completely unpainted, but owing to visibility problems for pedestrians and motorists in certain weather conditions they were soon given their green "bands".

The later silver buses were Leylands, I think there were more than four - L294,295,303-309.
These were part of the batch which stood unfinished in Edge Lane Works for years (L280-309). They had Crossley bodyshells which the Corporation should have finished but instead they were eventually finished by Metro Cammell.
They weren't really silver, they were just unpainted as an economy measure. Looked great when new but soon looked shabby!
Before being finished at Edge Lane a number of the L280 to L309 batch were stored in the old Smithdown Road Tram Shed.
