All London double deckers had to undergo a 'tilt test' to ensure stability. The bus was loaded with a full top deck load (simulated with sandbags) and then tilted on the tilt table.

It had to be able to be tilted to an angle of 38° with its wheels still on the floor. There were rubber buffers to catch the vehicle if it tipped but it was otherwise not restrained. This model of the shed and table actually works and an EFE or similar bus can be tested. Unfortunately because model buses are top heavy they will fail the test although a strategic blob of blutack will secure the model for photography
