Freight at the Back: New Zealand's Distinctive 'Composite' B


Until the mid-1980s, New Zealand government regulations protected rail from most road competition for long-distance freight traffic. An exception was made for parcels carried in buses and coaches, rather than lorries. Special freight/passenger psv's - known in local parlance as 'composites' - were thus built for routes with heavy parcels traffic. This book provides well-illustrated history of these unusual vehicles (many of which had British-built chassis), and of the operators who used them.
