For many bus and coach operators in Britain, the Second World War had taken its toll on their fleets, which afterwards were in desperate need of renewal and updating. Five years of make-do-and-mend and an upsurge in demand for travel meant demand for new or rebodied buses and coaches was high. Thus, a fair number of manufacturing companies who had never built bus or coach bodies in the past turned their factory floors into production lines for public service vehicle bodybuilding. For many, it was uncharted waters and quality could be variable. Some disappeared almost as quickly as they had begun; others lasted longer. This fully illustrated book tells the compelling tale of two rather different companies in Scotland that jumped on that bandwagon, but by the early 1950s were no more in this market. Thoroughly researched, the story is redolent of that short-lived era when Britain’s bus and coach operators were facing the post-war years with optimism, hope and determination.
