Classic Bus magazine cover
issue 149June - July 2017

Nick Thomson tells the tale of Warrington Corporation’s habit of keeping quite a few buses in its fleet for more than 20 years, and we have even more on the story of buses with snowploughs. Michael Dryhurst shows us an ex-Birch Willowbrook bodied Leyland Leopard climbing high in Ireland, and Keith Kitching tells us about Scott’s Greys of Darlington. He’s just written a book about the company.

The Omnibus Society has accumulated a vast collection of photographs over the years, often through donations in wills, and Gavin Booth explains something about it and how you can buy prints.A wonderful picture we showed of Marlborough High Street several issues ago inspired Thomas W W Knowles to tell us all about a number of cycle rides he took out of the town when he was at school there in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Part One reveals his adventures to the north and west of Marlborough.

We have London buses parked on a beach and old London buses by the Royal Exchange and in Whitehall on postcards. Roger Davies can’t remember if this is his 100th column or not, but talks about going to Belfast this time, while Robert E Jowitt displays a good deal of nostalgia for what he once disdained.

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!
