Brand New Book

Maidstone Corporation Transport followed a traditional course, and like many  other towns around the country it began by running trams (in 1904) and then  buses (in 1924). The trams were replaced between 1928 and 1930 mainly by  trolleybuses, which were themselves replaced by buses in 1967. This book provides a fascinating pictorial history of the buses used in Maidstone from the mid 1970's up until 1992, and is packed full with colour photographs of the vehicles themselves.

All the  photographs in this wonderful selection are from Eric's own extensive  collection. They combine with the highly informative text and captions to  provide a valuable record of all the types of buses owned (in their various  liveries) and the majority of the hired buses. The photographs have also been  chosen to show buses in many town centre locations, the traditional terminals,  post-1981 rural routes, suburban and central London. Coaches are shown in  locations as far apart as Portsmouth, Burnley and northern France. The book also includes  an abridged fleet list.
