Classic Bus magazine cover
issue 173June - July 2021

Interest in Seddon’s Pennine 7 has sparked David Toy to write about his experiences running them in the Scottish Bus Group. And Robin Hannay is hoping readers might be able to help him in what it was like running Dennis Lolines in comparison with Bristol Lodekkas.

Meanwhile, Stephen Morris reveals his classic classic bus by a process of elimination, and Peter Calvert recalls going to and being near Oxford in the 1960s. Going back a bit further, Alan Cross takes a look at Epsom in the late 1940s and early 1950s, when it was more green than red…

We’re in Ribble country again, asking about Midland Red’s missing Atlanteans and not solving a mystery in Derby. We’re also off for a jaunt on London Transport’s route 65 in a time-warp sort of way (instead of being at Brooklands!).

If you can help at all, that amazing resource The Bus Archive needs all our help to be better able to look after its growing collection that will benefit us all and future generations too. Details are in the magazine and on the Bus Archive website

Plus there’s our popular, lively and well-illustrated Forum section with topics ranging far and wide, and a look at some new books, so take out a subscription and enjoy the shamelessly nostalgic ride with Classic Bus!

You can also now pay for it all by Direct Debit and never miss an issue. If you like to read it on the move, you can also buy our digital version.
