Walsall Corporation Buses

Details

Walsall's bus fleet was always idiosyncratic, reflecting particularly the ideas of their General Managers. A bus fleet that not only served the town's many housing estates, its large fleet was used extensively on works and colliery services far beyond Walsall's boundaries. Financial constraints meant that buses were often built to the most basic specification and classes of buses rarely exceeded a dozen or so vehicles. Even the original two-tone blue livery was pared down to an all-over light blue with a thin relief of a yellow band. Yet for all its faults it was always a fascinating bus fleet with the wartime fleet in particular being subjected to an extensive rebodying programme usually involving pre-war bodies being mounted on wartime chassis.
