To many enthusiasts, municipal vehicles never extended beyond the trams, trolleybuses and buses, but behind them were a whole range of vehicles that were required to enable operations to proceed smoothly. These vehicles: tower wagons, tree-loppers, towing vehicles, training vehicles, mobile canteens, amongst others - represent a whole range of vehicle that, historically, have tended to be ignored. Some of these vehicles were often elderly buses converted for new duties, others were specially constructed for their somewhat specialised tasks; all, however, are fascinating examples of historic municipal vehicles. Gavin Booth, one of the country's leading experts on the subject of public transport history, has delved deep into the archives of many of the country's leading transport photographers to produce a fascinating survey of these often ignored vehicles. This title is a new version of the 2001 book from Ian Allan, and the photo reproduction leaves something to be desired.
