A valuable addition to the popular 'Glory Days' series, this book chronicles the story of Lancashire United Transport and the South Lancashire Tramways Co. from its origins in the early 20th century through to the end of its independent existence. Taken over by Greater Manchester PTE in 1976, Lancashire United Transport was at that date the country's largest independent operator of buses and coaches, bringing to an end a history of independent operation that stretched back 75 years. It was in 1901 that the South Lancashire Tramways Co opened the bulk of its network, but financial problems resulted in a new company, Lancashire United Transport, taking over in 1905. The LUT network, gradually expanded so that in the end, it operated a complex network of routes linking places such as Bolton, Salford and St Helens.

AEC, Bristol, Crossley, Daimler, Dennis, Leyland and others were all manufacturers of passenger vehicle chassis which could be seen throughout the country in the years following the end of World War Two. They produced a wide range of double deck and single deck buses and coaches, bodied by a considerable number of body builders. With the exception of Dennis, all those chassis makers have now disappeared, along with nearly all the body builders. In addition, most operators of this variety of vehicles are no longer in existence, being primarily absorbed into larger operations. This book can only give a small indication of the major role Steve and his Quantock Heritage fleet have played in preserving not only part of the engineering history of this country, but its effect also on social history. In practical terms he has displayed this by enabling the general public to see, enjoy, and also use vehicles of a bygone era.

Buses play a major role in the public transport of the United Kingdom, as well as seeing extensive private use. While rail transport has increased over the past twenty years due to road congestion, the same does not apply to buses, which have generally been used less, apart from in London where their use has increased significantly. Bus transport is heavily subsidised, with subsidy accounting for around 45 per cent of operator revenue, especially in London. In this Mass Transit Book, you will discover: - Introduction - Chapters - 1: Southern England - A coastal string of pearls - 2. West Midlands - Black Country, blue buses - 3. Lancashire South-west and Cheshire - Both sides of the Mersey - 4. Lancashire South-east - Centre of the universe - 5. Lancashire North -- Blackpool to the Lakes - 6.
