JIM BLAKE's EAST ANGLIA BUSES & COACHES in the 1960s ISBN: 9781912695249

by Jim Blake

This book features operators based in East Anglia. They correspond mostly to those included in the old Ian Allan British Bus Fleets series of ABC booklets which gave illustrated fleet lists of the operators concerned in the 1950s and 1960s. Sixty or so years ago, bus and coach operators outside London fell into four main categories. Firstly, there were the municipal fleets, run by town and city councils. Secondly, there were the generally inter-urban and rural-based fleets controlled by the British Transport Commission, popularly known as the Tilling Group. Thirdly, there were the British Electric Traction BET fleets, which were semi-nationalised in that they were partially owned by British Railways. Fourthly, there were independent bus and coach operators. These ranged in size from very large companies with inter-urban and rural services, to tiny rural operators with just a handful of vehicles. This fascinating book features over 185 black & white photographs of the various operators in the region.​
