* It is probable that KB344 was only in the fleet for a short time and did not receive fleet number.
Nos. 1-24 were mostly rebuilt as saloon buses (B32F?) between 1921 and 1926 (numbers unknown) and many were re-numbered (details uncertain); the bodies were probably built by Strachan & Brown; British Commercial and LUT themselves (there is also a photographic record of an LUT vehicle found in English Electric archives which may mean that some of the bodies were built there).
Withdrawn unknown (KB344; 1-24).
