During the period from 1980 until September 1983 I kept a detailed notebook of observations of the South Wales Transport bus fleet.
Now, those notes are published for the first time - with appropriate illustrations - in a 41-page A5 pdf e-book on CD.
Packed with information, the notes record the demise of AEC, Bristol and other pre-NBC vehicles in the SWT fleet and the introduction of new/secondhand VRTs and secondhand Leyland Nationals. Also recorded are the many hired-in vehicles during this interesting period of SWT history which also included the ABOVE -SAMPLE PAGE expansion of the company's coaching activities . A very reasonable price of 10.99 post and packing paid is the price to Welsh-Transport-Heritage readers. Contact Phil Trotter via his webpage under contacts. www.PhilT.org.uk.
