  1. 10 of thses Leyland Clysedale VK55 buses joined Ratmalana Depot in 1981
    Clysdale is originally an Albion designed whom merged with British Leyland
    This is also know as viking (VK55)but called Clysedale to avoid confusion with Ashok Leyland Viking
    The 10 buses were 29 Sri 5808 , 5834,5835,5836,5837 with the door at rear overhang and the balance 5 units 29 Sri 5854 5857 5860 5861 5862 with the door at the middle similar to Leyland/albion vikings in Singapore I used to go to school in 5837 which survived at RL depot till 2004 (RL20)
    5834 was decorated bus with Clock Cassette radio and dual tone Air horn driven by De Mel who was a proud driver Bus was called Asiri
    5836 & 5862 was slighly decorated
    5836 used to operate upto Aluthgama & galle thought their running was restricted between Fort & Moratuwa which stated on the dash board

    With these 10 buses 25 Leyland Boxers joined Maharagama Depot They all had numbers in 29 Sri 4000 & 5000 series But they did not last long
