London Buses a Living Heritage - Fifty Years of the London Bus Museum (Hardcover, Special edition): Graham Smith London Buses a Living Heritage - Fifty Years of the London Bus Museum (Hardcover, Special edition)

On 4th October 1966 eleven young bus enthusiasts met in Central London to look for ways to develop their shared interest in preserving some old London buses. They couldn't know then that their meeting was the beginning of a volunteer-run organisation which would grow to a membership of around 800 owning a world-class museum. This is the London Bus Museum at Brooklands in Surrey with its unique collection of buses spanning more than a century. This book describes the first 50 years of the London Bus Preservation Group/Trust, including the many years at its Cobham Bus Museum premises, and also shows how the London bus developed from the horse-bus through many stages to today's latest all-electric double-deckers. It's a fascinating journey through time as, indeed, are many of the stories about the vehicles in the London Bus Museum's collection.

Tim Moore - indefatigable travelling everyman – switches two wheels for four as he journeys across Trumpland in an original Model T Ford.

‘Alarmingly full of incident, very funny – even mildly transformative’ Daily Mail

Lacking even the most basic mechanical knowhow, Tim Moore sets out to cross Trumpland USA in an original Model T Ford. Armed only with a fan belt made of cotton, wooden wheels and a trunkload of ‘wise-ass Limey liberal gumption’, his route takes him exclusively through Donald-voting counties, meeting the everyday folks who voted red along the way.

He meets a people defined by extraordinary generosity, willing to shift heaven and earth to keep him on the road. And yet, this is clearly a nation in conflict with itself: citizens ‘tooling up’ in reaction to ever-increasing security fears; a healthcare system creaking to support sugar-loaded soda lovers; a disintegrating rust belt all but forgotten by the warring media and political classes.

With his trademark blend of slapstick humour, affable insight and butt-clenching peril, Tim Moore invites us on an unforgettable road trip through America. Buckle up!

The buses on Britain's roads went through a period of great change between 1950 and 1986. In 1950 the bus manufacturers were at last recovering from the effects of the Second World War, and had new and innovative designs to offer. By the time bus services were deregulated in 1986, buses were very different - longer, wider, more powerful and often with rear engines - and the industry had changed dramatically, with changes of ownership affecting nearly every major operator. This book uses 150 colour photographs to tell the story of the buses that served Britain between 1950 and 1986 and traces the progression from the time-served prewar buses that survived well into the 1950s, through the early underfloor-engined single-deckers; the lightweight era; the rear-engined double-deckers; the often unsuccessful rear-engined single-deckers; through to the types that could be seen on the streets in the 1990s, including the first of the new-generation minibuses. This book was originally published in hardback in 1996 by one of Britain's foremost transport publishers and is now available for the first time in paperback. It has been freshly designed but will seek to retain the author's original text and illustrations.

Unsinkable - The Full Story of Rms Titanic (Hardcover): Daniel Allen Butler Unsinkable - The Full Story of Rms Titanic (Hardcover)
Daniel Allen Butler
R373 Discovery Miles 3 730 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

No other ship in history has attracted so much attention, stirred up such powerful emotion, or accumulated as many legends and myths as Titanic. "Unsinkable" is a fresh look at this incredible story, one that centers on the people who built the ship, crewed her, and sailed on her. It follows the great ship as she grows on the ways at Harland & Wolff in Belfast, sails from Southampton toward her unexpected rendezvous with an iceberg, then slowly sinks into the North Atlantic, forever shattering the optimistic complacency of her era. The story doesn't end there, however, for the tale continues through the high drama of the U.S. Senate investigation and the British Board of Trade inquiry, then introduces the "mystery ship" Californian, whose officers watched Titanic sink and did nothing for fear of being subjected to their sleeping captain's wrath. The narrative then carries on with the recovery of many of Titanic's dead and their interment at Halifax, Nova Scotia, through the discovery of the wreck in 1985, and finally to the abortive 1996 expedition to raise a section of her rusted hull.

W. Heath Robinson is best known for his hilarious drawings of zany contraptions, though his work ranged across a wide variety of topics covering many aspects of British life in the decades following the First World War. Starting out as a watercolour artist, he quickly turned to the more lucrative field of book illustration and developed his forte in satirical drawings and cartoons. He was regularly commissioned by the editors of Tatler and The Sketch and in great demand from advertising companies. Collections of his drawings were subsequently published in many different editions and became so successful as to transform Heath Robinson into a household name, celebrated for his eccentric brand of British humour. Presenting such innovations as the `Zip-Opening Bonnet', the `Duo-car for the Incompatible' and the handy `New Rear Wheel Gear for Turning the Car in One Movement', this volume of Heath Robinson illustrations with commentary by K.R.G. Browne will appeal to `everybody who is ever likely to drive, be driven in, or get run over by a mechanically propelled vehicle'.

Following nationalisation in 1948, the newly created British Railways continued to construct coaching stock based upon the designs of the 'Big Four' railways until 1951. The Pre-Nationalisation coaching stock built by the four constituent railway companies at the Grouping in 1923 - the Southern Railway, the Great Western Railway, the London, Midland & Scottish Railway and the London and North Eastern Railway - continued to feature in the BR fleet through the 1950s to the mid-1960s, as well as some coaching stock built before 1923 by the precursor railway companies to the 'Big Four'. A number of these pre-Nationalisation coaches are preserved today on various heritage railways around the country or in railway museums. This is a complete list of the coaching stock inherited by British Railways from the Great Western Railway and London & North Eastern Railway including any pre-Grouping stock still in use when the railways were nationalised in 1948. The book covers passenger as well as non-passenger coaches, including corridor and non-corridor stock, sleepers, buffet and restaurant cars, horse boxes and other non-passenger vans, griddle cars, milk tanks, etc. Conversions to departmental stock are also listed. The information in the book is organised by 'Big Four' company and each individual coach is listed, with details of when it was built, introduction and withdrawal dates. Alongside the tabular material will be a line drawing of each carriage type and a selection of mono photographs illustrating examples of the various types of coach being described. Encyclopaedic in coverage, this new volume in the Hugh Longworth library continues in the same style as previous volumes with completely comprehensive detail combined with reference illustrations and photographs. An essential addition to the railway enthusiast's library. A companion volume of the coaching stock inherited by British Railways from the Southern Railway and London, Midland & Scottish Railway will be published in 2018.
