  My main interest in Buses is in ones from the 50's, 60's and early 70's, these pages have a selection of photos of some from this period.

Latest bus pics are on Quantock Heritage - some added 27 May 2015.

Trolleybuses - Bournemouth 301

 Even though I haven't that many bus photos they still fall into various categories starting with trolleybuses, I used to visit relatives in Reading as a child and well remember my fascination with the trolleybuses there, the photos on here though are of those in Bournemouth where I was living during the last couple of years of their operation.

 

Preserved Buses - Royal Blue coachNext comes some preserved buses - ordinary diesel ones - that I knew in their days in service in the 60's and 70's before the National Bus Company destroyed the old identities of the various companies.

 

John Dawkins' Wilts & Dorset photos

A new page, John Dawkins has let me have several 1970s Wilts & Dorset photos.

 

 

Guest Photos has some old shots of Bristol/ECW buses from Bath to Ardrossan.

Western National and Devon GeneralWestern National and Devon General has photos of these two operators buses in the 70's along with some of Greenslades Coaches and Exeter Corporation buses.

Crosville Running Day

  I'd really like to have some photos of Hants & Dorset, Wilts & Dorset, Bournemouth Corporation and Provincial from the mid 60's to the mid 70's so if you have any I could use please send them to me at steve@shuddy.fsnet.co.uk, I would of course give credit, links etc. in return.
