By 1951 CIE had been in existence for six years, and its new building programme had produced 452 deckers, buses and coaches and these had done much to bring new standards of bus travel to Irish roads. By 1951 most of the older petrol engined ex Great Southern bus fleet had been replaced, as well as the last ex Dublin United trams. Next in line for replacement was the mid 1930s DUTC fleet of AEC Regals and Leyland Lions, and during 1951 and 1952 55 Leyland Tigers were placed in service on Dublin City routes. For the first time these had rear entrances as opposed to the forward ones of earlier buses, and around 50 of the latter were subsequently rebuilt.

of double deckers resumed in 1952, these being interspersed alongside further Leyland Tiger coaches and buses, and from 1954, Leyland Royal Tigers which took the company into the space saving underfloor engined era. Again these were produced in both coach and bus format. On the bus version, the body was merely an adaptation of the P class design. The first 50 though were new touring coaches, with a stylish design based on the contemporary Harrington design. CIE had briefly taken MUF 430 on loan from Southdown, and this vehicle was thought to be the basis for their own coach design for the U class. These 50 vehicles were to be the only single deck coaches to be built for CIE which had a centre entrance. Delivery of these was quite prolonged, U1 - U6 entering service in July and August 1954, U7 - U44 from May to August of 1955, and the final six in June 1956.

Included among the Titans in this period were six double deck coaches, numbered R541 to R546. These were very stylishly finished vehicles, new in 1953 for the express service to Dublin Airport. They had centre entrance and staircase, seating for 50 and a large walk in luggage compartment behind the back axle. After 11 years on the airport service, they were converted to half cab rear platform buses and replaced by Leyland Royal Tigers. Ten other Titans were fitted with platform doors from new, and 23 more were modified later in a similar fashion at overhaul. In late 1954 the six 1946 Daimler CWA6s began to be taken out of service, and the bodies in turn were removed, lengthened slightly and then fitted to new 7'6" wide Leyland Titan chassis. These re-entered service at the rate of one per month, so presumably one other bus was substituted in the route 72 schedule (on which the Daimlers had spent their lives), while the conversion programme was carried out. After rebuilding, these special Titans also worked on route 72.

7'6" wide Tigers were also built in 1953, with a total of 71 finding use on narrower roads in rural areas. Again these featured rear entrances. The same year saw the opening of the new bus station at Store Street, Dublin for provincial services, with the first departures on October 20th. By the end of 1955, the only pre-CIE era buses left in service were Leyland Titans R1 - 260 (apart from Tigers T6 - T8), and the following six years would see a complete block on production of single decks, as more new Titans were turned out to replace their pre-war counterparts.

As with other lists, the data is not complete. Any updates or corrections would be welcome, especially corrected dates for the withdrawal and disposal of P262. Some of the front entrance P class buses were rebuilt as rear entrance, possibly around 50 vehicles, and research on these is now underway. My thanks to Simon Lang for researching and correcting the rebuild dates of the U class buses.
