Swiss Postbuses 2nd Edition


Re-cast into A4 format and running to 208 pages, this book provides a company history and fleet description of this celebrated bus & coach operator in much greater detail than before, thanks to significant contributions from expert enthusiasts in the UK and Switzerland. Amongst other things, there is a description of trials with experimental motor buses in 1906 and the subsequent evolution of bus design, particularly for the demanding conditions of Alpine routes. Acquisition and/or disposal details, and information on fleet re-numbering, is provided in detailed appendices for as many vehicles as possible. Arrangements for the contracting-out of many routes and the evolution of bus livery are explained and there is a brief resume of ticketing. The past & present fleet is illustrated profusely with 526 colour photographs and a further 132 in black-and-white. The description of the present-day network has been updated and is accompanied by 10 new maps.
