The double deckers from 1965 onwards were all rear engine, front entrance buses although for a period, a dual door version with a separate exit was purchased for one man operation. The first Daimler Fleetlines, like the Atlanteans, had a modified destination blind layout, with two destination blinds, one above the other and a large, square number blind to the right (as viewed from the road). The upper blind was for the destination and the lower one for other information (Via, Service Extra, Works, etc). Later photographs indicate the use of only the lower blind and at least some buses later had one of the blinds removed and the remaining one in line with the number blind
All buses transferred to WMPTE in 1974
