The Leyland Atlantean City Bus was in the Dinky range from 1962 to 1977 under a series of model numbers and was available in a range of different liveries.

From 1962 to 1965 it was model number 292 and red & white or red & cream in Ribble or Corporation Transport livery. From 1963 to 1965 it was also available in green and cream under model number 293 with BP advertising and Corporation Transport livery. There seems to be a gap to 1974 when it appeared as 291 in orange/red with Kennings Car Van and Truck Hire advertising. This remained in production until 1977. There is a rare listed Code 2 version of 291 in white with London and Manchester Assurance of which 500 were made.

From 1973 to 1976 it was available in Yellow Pages whole bus advertising, the later releases being a darker shade of yellow. The last release was in 1977 in silver as a commemorative for the Queen's Silver Jubilee. Like Corgi there are two versions, one featuring Woolworth's logos, the other not.

In terms of value they are not generally that rare and prices are modest. The prize is the London & Manchester Assurance Code 2 model, of the general releases look out for the green and cream BP bus and any of the 292 models.
