Compiled by the well-respected transport enthusiast and publisher Mr Geoff Mills this softback A4 sized publication has 84 pages and over 300 photographs.

It includes:
Illustrations of associated companies and acquisitions over the years, a Fleet List, Timetable Covers & History.

We will also send with every book purchased a current fleet list and a selection of local bus timetables.
