More heritage fleet lists     Date added: 10/07/2017
  More heritage fleet lists

Alongside the compilation of various fleet books, we've been working on a number of historic projects in the background. Included in this is the gradual production of old fleet lists, firstly concentrating on the former London Country Bus Services operations, with annual fleet lists produced starting from June 1975.

We have just produced fleet lists which reflect the fleet as at June 1979 and June 1980, with the most notable comments being as follows:

1979 fleet list reflects withdrawals of Routemasters and sales of MB, MBS and SM-class vehicles, as well as influxes of Leyland Atlanteans, Leyland Nationals and AEC Reliance coaches;
1980 fleet lists reflects the disposal of all bar a handful of Routemasters to London Transport, further sales of MB, MBS and SM-class vehicles, the first sales of RP-class AEC Reliances and further influxes of Atlanteans, Nationals and AEC Reliance coaches.

We also have a very exciting announcement to make in the next few days - keep your eyes open for further updates!

All of these items, plus many more, are available for purchase through our web site.

Fleet lists updated     Date added: 12/06/2017
  Woolybus fleet lists updated

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce that we have undertaken another update of the fleet lists which we have available for purchase on our web site.

Most notable changes in this update include:

-   Clarkes of London is now featured in the NatEx lists, following the purchase of Clarkes a couple of months ago;
-   Perrymans of Berwick-upon-Tweed, within the Craig Group, is now listed as Border Buses, to reflect the acquisition of the Galashiels operation from First Edinburgh.

We have also undertaken a thorough exercise over the past few months to improve the accuracy of the information within our fleet lists, including how up to date the information is, and are confident that the lists are currently the most up to date that we have ever had fleet lists.

All of these updated fleet lists are available for purchase now.
