BRUSH TRACTION Part 1 DIESEL & ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES 1940-2008 ISBN: 9781905304004​

by George Toms

This comprehensive history covers in detail the formation of the business in 1919, with its South Wales connections, up to the closure of the Pemberton premises in Wigan early in 2005. The story follows the rapid expansion of the 1920s and 1930s, through the difficult war years leading to the post-war heyday and is copiously illustrated throughout, covering in detail the development of the changing body styles, but not forgetting the human input. The account includes a look at Massey Brothers of Wigan, who were taken over in 1967 and after 70 years of control from Cardiff, the intricate changes in ownership are traced up to the final sad closure in 2005.
