We at Woolybus are pleased to announce the arrival from the printers of our tenth publication, the 2018 Go-Ahead Fleet Book, which was launched at the Brooklands "On the Buses" event yesterday (Sunday 24th June 2018).

Priced at 18.00, it consists of over 140 pages and contains over 110 full colour photographs, covering the UK bus and rail fleets of Go-Ahead Group. We also ask for 1.00 to be paid towards postage and packaging towards orders within the UK, and kindly ask international customers to contact us first to get the best shipping rate.

Also arriving into stock, and expected to sell out very quickly is Northcord model UKBUS6503, the ADL Enviro 400MMC in Stagecoach London livery, modelled while on route 498 to Brentwood. We sold a number of these yesterday, and as a result our stock is now limited, and is very unlikely we will be getting any more into stock either. This model is priced at 42.50 plus P&P to destinations within the UK mainland, and also ask international customers to contact us first to get the best price including shipping rates.

To order either of these items, or anything that we have for sale, simply visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Now in stock - 2018 FirstGroup and South East Bus Fleet Books     Date added: 30/03/2018
  Now in stock - 2018 FirstGroup and South East Bus Fleet Books

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce, just one day apart, the arrival into stock of our two recent releases, by way of the 2018 FirstGroup and the South East Bus Fleet Books.

Firstly, we'd like to thank our excellent printers, Book Printing UK, for their rapid turn-around of our orders once the proofs had been approved, and for their outstanding assistance with the recent problems suffered by the courier in getting the 2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book to us.

Both of these books are updated to the end of February. The 2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book covers all of the mainland UK operations, both bus and rail, with each bus division separated and listed alphabetically, followed by the rail section in the same fashion. Consisting of over 170 pages and containing over 140 full colour photographs, we are expecting this book to be a top seller.

Our South East Bus Fleet Book is also the first regional (outside of London) book that we have put together. This first edition is also updated to the end of February, and includes 33 operators from across the southeast of England, covering Essex, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, the eastern part of Hampshire and a part of Berkshire. Consisting of over 150 pages and containing over 120 full colour photographs, we are also expecting this to follow in the footsteps of our other publications and become top sellers.

The pricing for these books is 18.00 for the FirstGroup book, and 15.00 for the South East book. We also ask for a postage and packing charge of 1.00 per book on orders within the UK - for international orders, we ask that customers contact us first to get the best shipping rates. All customers who have pre-ordered these exciting publications will have their orders despatched tomorrow morning, and should be with them during the next week.

Both of these books are available for purchase now through our web site, or by calling us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book - a further update     Date added: 28/03/2018
  2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book - a further update plus news on our other forthcoming title

We at Woolybus have a further update on the saga with out forthcoming 2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book which we would like to share with you all.

By some sort of miracle, we had a knock at the door this morning and were presented with a UPS delivery driver, with three parcels. To say these weren't expected is an understatement, especially in light of yesterdays developments with UPS conceding that they would now deem these three parcels to be "lost in transit".

Yup, our 200 copies of the 2018 FirstGroup Fleet Book have now arrived and are in stock, ready to be despatched.

We also received notification from our printers this morning that our other forthcoming title, the South East Bus Fleet Book, has also been printed and was ready for despatch. However, as we were told that this would likely be despatched by UPS (as one of their last consignments), we have opted to make the journey to our printers in Peterborough to collect these books plus some reprints that we have ordered. We are looking forward to this opportunity to finally meet the staff at a professional company that we have been working with for the past 18 months - without the help that they have given over the past 18 months, the publications side of Woolybus would not be where it is now, with us learning more and more with each book that we have produced, in a variety of ways.

As a result of this collection tomorrow, we will hold off the massive despatching of the pre-ordered books until Saturday morning, with a total of over 200 books pre-ordered and waiting to go out of the door. For those who have pre-ordered both of these titles, they will be sent together in the same envelope.

To order either of these titles, or anything that we have for sale on our web site, either visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

We also have another exciting announcement to make during next week - watch this space!
