Not in Service - The Afterlife of Classic British Buses


The humble omnibus has been seen on the UK's highways and byways for many decades, conveying passengers to work, on holiday, or on any outing - especially in the era before car ownership reached its zenith. The motorised workhouses clocked up thousands of miles and carried tens of thousands of people, but what happened when an operator decided vehicles had reached the journey's end for the last time? This illustrated book affectionately traces the 'afterlife' of vehicles withdrawn by their original owners, and examines the myriad purposes second-hand buses serve - from contractor's transport, showmen and fairground vehicles, caravans and living quarters; exhibition units and the like, in addition to finding new owners around the country for further stage carriage and non-PSV service, and emigration to new lives overseas.
