It also traces some perhaps unexpected relationships to the Bexhill Motor Co, the Motor Touring Co of Llandudno, the London Motor Omnibus Co (Vanguard), the London Electrobus Co, the Edinburgh & District Motor Omnibus Co, and Deal & District Motor Services.

Written by Wythall members Brian Dicks and Andrew Gardner, A4 softback, 272 pages long with over 350 illustrations A4 softback, 272 pages long with over 350 illustrations

Malcolm Keeley's latest (and final?) book the subject

Birmingham City Transport continues to attract interest half a century after its loss, a tribute to the quality of its buses and their maintenance. Malcolm Keeley, a familiar author on various aspects of Midlands bus operations, packs this fully illustrated book with the results of a lifetime's interest and research to create the most thorough description of BCT's buses and trolleybuses to be published. The book includes their lives with the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive from 1969. Additional Information
