London's Bus Purchases 1946-1994 is unique because in one volume it lists every bus and coach, new and second-hand, bought by London Transport and London Buses from 1946 until privatisation in 1994. At the start of the period LT was taking delivery of its last wartime buses. At the end, the first of a new generation of low-floor buses were being delivered. In between there were classic types such as the RT and the Routemaster and less successful models like the Merlin and the Fleetline. All are listed, along with less common types including a Neoplan Skyliner, a Renault PR100 and the unusual Dartford Tunnel Thames Trader bicycle buses. The vehicle lists are supported by informative text giving an overview of the various vehicle types - and even an acknowledgement by LT in 1984 that responsibility for the problems it experienced with Daimler Fleetlines could not all be laid at British Leyland's door. Almost 150 photographs illustrate the unexpected variety of the London bus fleet over five decades.
