Albion Motors.
'Sure as the Sunrise' was the slogan of Albion who carried a sunrise on their badge. Thomas Blackwood Murray and Norman Osborne Fulton both left Arrol-Johnson and set up the Albion Motor Car Company in 1899 in Glasgow. In 1903 Albion moved to Scotstoun and by 1909 were concentrating on commercial vehicles , building their last car in 1915. Although some buses and coaches had been built on Albion truck chassis, in 1923 Albion introduced their first dedicated bus chassis, and thereafter a series of buses carried names such as Viking, Valkyrie, Valiant, Victor, Venturer. In 1955 Albion introduced the Nimbus coach with underfloor engine, but were already under Leyland ownership by then. The Albion name gave way to 'Leyland' in 1983.
