issue 182 (December 2022 – January 2023)

Jeremy Williams seems to have had a fine collection of aunts to visit by bus and this time takes us on a terrific jaunt to Morecambe to visit yet another. We’re also off to the Black Isle, north of Inverness, to see some Highland buses and, for something a bit more exotic, to the Caribbean for some Cuban rarities. For more oddities, we also look at buses on rails again.

More information has come to light about Alder Valley’s Lex Maxeta bodied little buses and about London Transport’s single-door SM Swifts. And talking of London single deckers, we go on a great British bus route with a brief look at the famous 210 across Hampstead Heath.

Barry Turner tells us why the ECW bodied Bristol L is his classic, classic bus, David Toy recalls how Brighton’s buses fared in a previous heatwave, and we have more observations about Victoria Coach Station.
