Maidstone & District


This book delves into the character and style of M&D by looking at the company from many different aspects. The authors show how the fleet was modernised rapidly in early post-war days and then developed to meet the challenges the company faced over the ensuing years. The spread of one-man-operation is covered in the look at how the single-deck fleet developed, as is the change to rear-engined double-deckers and the growth of coaches and coaching activities. There is a journey around the patch, taking each depot as a focus for understanding the nature of the diverse territory and services operated, with fascinating asides and diversions that bring out the full character of the company. Joint operation is looked at, including the famous Heathfield Pool, what went on behind the scenes, rules and regulations, not to mention personal stories and reminiscences. Richly illustrated with colour and black & white photographs, maps and diagrams, plus timetable reproductions and period adverts.
