British Rail Leyland Sherpa minibus
76SHP002 British Rail Leyland Sherpa minibus
GBT945W from 1980-81 decorated in British Rail’s signature yellow colour scheme. The Leyland Sherpa was manufactured between 1974 and 1982, originally named the Leyland Van until 1975 when it became the Sherpa. It came in various weights and engine sizes and the Oxford version is based on the Sherpa 200. The Sherpa proved to be very versatile in its day and its bodyshape lent itself not only to van variants but also to crew buses and minibuses.
