About this title:

Synopsis: This new book is a follow-up to the author's very successful previous colour album that combined road and rail operations, London Transport in Colour 1950-1969. Now taking the timeline from 1949 to 1974, the book begins with a look at the vintage and slightly less elderly tube and surface stock in existence in the period under review, together with associated steam locomotives and some departmental road vehicles. Then the focus moves to London's much loved trams and trolleybuses which ended their service in the capital in 1952 and 1962 respectively. There are classic images of post-war trolleybuses, together with pre-war and wartime examples to delight fans of these electric vehicles. The final segment of the album is devoted to buses and inevitably, because of the dearth of material on the pre-RT generation, coverage is largely of the RT type, including the Leyland variants. Taken together there were almost 7,000 of these superb vehicles carrying passengers through the streets of London, its suburbs and the surrounding countryside at carious times between 1939 and 1979. the RT's contemporaries, the RF (including variants), GS, RLH and T classes are also covered..
