About These Pages
I have been interested in transport history for a long time and, in 1999,
started collecting information about various transport undertakings that I had
a particular interest in, initially for my own use. As my collection of notes
began to grow I decided that they may be of interest to local historians and
enthusiasts in general, and so began developing a website.
For many years these records have been bandied about the Internet on various
sites but, finally, I have decided that they should be published on my own
site, and, hopefully, this is where they will remain for the foreseeable
Operator Fleet Histories
This section contains brief histories of municipal and private undertakings
and records of vehicles owned and operated by such undertakings, all
information being compiled with reference to various sources. These are
written in a 'local history' style and are intended to be brief summaries of
the undertakings concerned and are not concise histories, which can be
obtained elsewhere. There are only a limited number of histories available at
present. This is an ongoing project and I hope to add more in due course as
This section contains general histories about the development of various modes
of road transport, (e.g. horsebus, tram, trolleybus etc.) and fuel management systems. These are only intended to be summaries and are not concise histories.
Histories of UK chassis and body makers - now all just a memory! Once again
these are summaries and not concise histories.
Short biographies of some of the pioneers of road transport, along with
the pioneering companies and vehicles that improved the lot of the traveller.
