Our Southdown Tigers and Pictures of Many More


This book tells the story of one ECW-bodied Leyland bus that has been in preservation for three times as long as she served Southdown. After recording briefly 677's early life, the book tells about her 42 years in present ownership, describing work done, events attended, places visited and the pains and pleasures of retaining for posterity this charming piece of British transport heritage. There is also an account of all 25 of the vehicles of 677's batch covering aspects of their lives from ordering and delivery through to their twilight years, including an extensive picture gallery of 78 photographs. For good measure a chapter is included about 1650, the former Southdown Royal Tiger coach that after a working life of seventeen years in the UK spent more than 40 in Malta before repatriation by the author.
