issue 150August - September 2017

Edinburgh has had a long history of municipal run sightseeing and today it has a fleet of purpose-built open-toppers doing good business. Gavin Booth tells the story. meanwhile Alan Hiley recounts his days working at more than Trent depot in Mansfield, a subject we seem to keep coming back to.

There’s a new book on South Yorkshire just out, with some excellent colour pictures - we show you something of it.


How about some ex-City of Oxford buses that got sent up to Aberdeen (or should that be sent up), and we’re back on The Stade in Hastings with more coaches out for a day at the seaside. There’s more information on what one reader’s mum called the Sweetheart Bus and we have a Midland Red SOS in Ledbury that was used for lantern slide shows to encourage getting out by bus or coach.

Robert E Jowitt thinks about what makes a good photograph and Roger Davies remembers the start of the National Bus Company.

Of course, we have our usual lively and well-illustrated Forum section and new books to consider, too, so take out a subscription and enjoy the shamelessly nostalgic ride with Classic Bus!
