Notes

In the listings, bus bodywork type and layout details are indicated using the traditional British nomenclature consisting of a prefix of one or more letters, a number or series of numbers and a suffix of one or more letters. (Not every variety is present in the museum's collection)

Initial Prefix indicates a variation of main body style (N.B. initial prefix is omitted where variations do not apply)

C = Coach seating in a double-deck body
F = "Full-front" cab fitted to a body mounted on what is normally a half cab layout chassis
O = Open-top variation of single decker
R = "Part" upper deck incorporated at Rear of single-decker (sometimes known as "1½ decker")
U = Utility (Second World War austerity) specification bodywork

Prefix indicates main body style

A = Articulated
B = Single-deck Bus
C = Single-deck Coach
DP = Dual Purpose single-decker (coach seats in bus specification body)
H = Double-deck Bus (standard layout with central gangway upstairs)
L = Lowbridge Double-deck Bus (low height body achieved by having a sunken side gangway upstairs)
O = Open-top double decker
CO = Convertible open-top standard layout double-decker

Numbers indicate passenger capacity

Single number (i.e. #) indicates total seating capacity
Two numbers separated by "/" (i.e.#/#) (double deckers) indicates upper deck followed by lower deck seating capacities (where known)
After main number(s), "+" followed by a number (i.e. +#) indicates number of standing passengers permitted
N.B. where just the number of standing passengers allowed in the U.K. (normally 8) applies, by default no "+#" is shown.
Any +# shown indicates the total number of standees permitted.

Suffix indicates entrance/ exit positions
(exact positions cannot be indicated and generally will depend on chassis design)

F = Front entrance/ exit (ahead of front wheels) or Forward entrance/ exit (behind front wheels)
C = Centre entrance/ exit
R = Rear entrance/ exit
D = Dual doorway
T = Triple doorway
TR = "Toast rack" style access to transverse bench seating

Final Suffix indicates additional body features

D = Doors fitted to rear-only entrance/ exit doorway.
N.B. it is assumed that doors are fitted to all front, forward and centre doorways, hence final suffix "D" is omitted by default form all categories except rear entrance/ exit.
OS = Outside Staircase
