Lesney Products of Hackney, London E9 made the famous Matchbox toy models. They used a sizable fleet of double decker buses to bring staff to and from work from the local area, through most of the 1960s and 1970s. This included RTs, non-London bus types and four RLHs over the course of time, which were painted blue;
|LT fleet number||Lesney fleet number||Dates|
|RLH 14||61||10/71 to 9/72|
|RLH 21||66||6/73 to 10/74|
|RLH 32||63||9/71 to 10/74|
|RLH 45||64||9/71 to 10/72|
The RLHs' low height proved useful for passing under the same low bridge, on Carpenter's Road, for which RLHs were used on route 178.
