The legendary East Yorkshire Motor Services has been providing bus services in East Yorkshire since 1926. With buses painted in a distinctive livery of indigo blue and primrose yellow the company became famous for its 'Beverley Bar'-shaped double-deckers operated through Beverley's North Bar between 1933 and 1970. With distinctive destination indicators and the Willebrew ticket system, here was a company with its own very idiosyncratic way of doing things. Author Bernard Warr has been an enthusiastic observer of the company since the mid-1950s and in that time has managed to take many photographs that will bring back memories of how the company fared in the boom days of bus travel in the 1950s and 1960s. Most of these images have never been published before and will provide a fresh insight into the company. The Beverley Bar roofs and the distinctive livery may have gone but EYMS seems proud of its history and is embracing the future with confidence.

The Bluebell Railway was the premier preserved line in the thirty -year period covered in this book. Busy as he was with recording working BR s team in the mid- sixties, David Christie's first visit to the line was by train in 1964 and then from 1967 more frequently by car, with a total of eighteen trips. The greater proportion of these were in the period 1969-72 when the line was usually worked by tank engines and nothing larger than the 'Duke dog' 4-4-0. The later, more in frequent visits witnessed a change from the 'sleepy branch line' image to more of a 'cross-country' feel, using longer trains with larger locomotives. With an array of incredible unpublished photography covering the heyday of this iconic line, from 1964 to 1993, the author offers a wonder fully nostalgic and brilliantly evocative record of this wonderful period in the life of the Bluebell Railway.

This sixth volume in the regional series of books looking at the industrial railways of England, Wales and Scotland specifically covers Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire, a region widely associated with the rapid growth of industry during the Industrial Revolution. The widespread coal mining activities, which particularly influenced the economy of the region during the twentieth century, were once served by an extensive network of railways, and some also by canals. The Manchester Ship Canal railways at Trafford Park and Ellesmere Port are featured, but there were also other ports and docks around Liverpool and at Preston, all having extensive railways and fascinating locomotive fleets. These are covered, along with the colliery railways and many of the numerous power stations which were once strategically located around the region, some fed directly from adjacent coal mines. Peat workings, chemicals works, oil refineries, salt mining, paper, steel, cement and glass manufacture are all covered. The area has a rich industrial heritage and the industrial railways of both standard and narrow gauges which once served the region were equally rich in variety. Primarily utilising previously unpublished colour photography, Gordon Edgar offers a fascinating view of industrial locomotives and railways in the area, essentially covering the last six decades.

Thanks to a quirk of fate, and the survival of so many locomotives in the Barry scrapyard, the GWR is well represented in the steam preservation scene today. John Maybery takes us through the surviving Great Western locomotives, from the Kings and Castle passenger locos through Halls and Manors and onto the ubiquitous Prairie and pannier tanks. He also covers the narrow gauge locomotives of the Vale of Rheidol Railway, which was Britain's last nationalised steam passenger railway until privatisation in 1989. The diesel railcars and the replica broad gauge locomotives are also covered in this fully illustrated and informative book.

R1,036 Discovery Miles 10 360 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Crisis, Resilience and Survival charts the evolution of the global automotive industry, revealing the pressures and challenges facing firms in this huge but turbulent realm of business. Long-term overcapacity and swings of the economic cycle mean that many car companies are in financially perilous positions. Yet failures of auto companies are rare, and many have bounced back from the brink. Using the concept of the 'survival envelope', Holweg and Oliver argue that the ability to design, develop, manufacture and distribute vehicles competitively is not the only factor in ensuring success. Using detailed analyses of two failures (Rover and Saab) and two near-misses (Chrysler and Nissan) they explore how scale, market reach and supportive stakeholder relations can make the difference between success and failure in this global industry. This book will appeal to anyone working in, or studying the auto industry, as well as those interested in corporate success and failure.

The Waverley Route ran from Edinburgh, through the Scottish Borders, to Carlisle. Opening in 1862, the line was closed in 1969 as a result of the Beeching Report; feelings ran so high when it closed that there were protests which delayed the last passenger service on the line by two hours, led to the arrest of the local minister and required the local MP to mediate with the police. However, there has been an upsurge of interest and the line is due to re-open from Edinburgh to Galashiels in September 2015. Named after the famous novel by Sir Walter Scott, the line ran through the countryside where it was set, providing a link between some of the most isolated communities in Britain. The Waverley Route Through Time will take the reader on a tour through that beautiful countryside, showing through a collection of old and contemporary photographs how the local area has changed.

Railways Around Worcestershire is one man's view of a range of railway operations in the beautiful heart of England over a period spanning nearly half a century. The early 1970s was an era neglected by many photographers following the end of steam - however, it is now quite apparent how the intervening generations have seen even greater changes. Ranging from the Malvern Hills through the beautiful cathedral city of Worcester to the Cotswolds, the railways are once again going through a transitional period where traditional semaphore signalling controls operations at Worcester while a new Parkway station is being built on the city outskirts. A wide range of motive power is featured at a range of locations - Worcester, Great Malvern, Evesham, Droitwich Spa, Kidderminster and more.

On 16 January 1988 bus services in the Bexley area underwent enormous changes - long-established routes were altered or absorbed into other routes and Sidcup Garage closed, while Bexleyheath Garage re-opened. Buses and operators were changed and so began one of the most unsettled and colourful periods the area's bus network had known. The Bexley area routes had been put out to tender, and Selkent won seventeen of the twenty routes, using a low cost subsidiary and operating a mixed fleet of buses (both old and new) based at the re-opened garage at Bexleyheath. Things did not go smoothly from the start, leading to the eventual loss of three routes to Boro'line Maidstone within the first year. Bexley Buses takes a close look at the area's buses and routes, from the relative stability of 1983, through the Bexleybus era and finishing with the loss of all the Bexleybus routes upon re-tendering. In addition to Bexleybus, the operations and vehicles of all other operators in the area are covered.

The Ships That Came to the Pool of London - From the Roman Galley to HMS Belfast (Paperback): Nick Robins The Ships That Came to the Pool of London - From the Roman Galley to HMS Belfast (Paperback)

The Pool of London has long been a busy place. It has been the focus of seaborne trade with the city since the Roman galleys first arrived with exotic cargoes. After the Industrial Revolution the sailing packets were followed by wooden-hulled paddle steamships in the coasting trades, while the deep sea fleets still relied on both sail and steam. Imposing warehouses were constructed to store goods safe from the weather; several survive to this day, including Butler's Wharf and Hay's Wharf on the south bank of the Upper Pool. The Pool developed an important connection with Northern Europe and the near Continent, as ships travelling further afield became larger and migrated to the new dock systems. Barges cluttered up the riverside wharves delivering and collecting goods from up and down river and transhipping goods from the docks. This is the story of the ships that came to the Pool and, with it, the development of London as a port and an international commercial centre. It is an exciting story, full of colour and bustle that will appeal to many, including the numerous visitors that come to see HMS Belfast.
