British Coaching - Chassis Manufacturers, Coachbuilders and Operators

Coaches have long been a part of life in Britain, from the days of eighteenth-century stage coaches galloping along muddied tracks to air-conditioned fleets cruising the motorways of the modern day.
As we moved past the horse-driven coaches of the past, and the charabancs and buses that followed, three key parts of the industry shaped the world of coaching as we know it today: the chassis manufacturers, the coachbuilders and the operators.

Delving into his impressive collection of rare and unseen photographs, Michael Hymans explores each of these in turn and delivers a fascinating, lavishly illustrated history of the major players in the world of British coaching.
Profiling major names such as AEC, Leyland, Duple and Bristol, with photographs dating back as far as the early twentieth century, this is an essential volume for any enthusiast keen to learn more about Britain's coaching history.

Coach Styles 1950s-1990s

NEU

In the early 1950s, coach designs were conventional but underwent a significant transformation with the introduction of underfloor-engine chassis and longer maximum lengths. Advancements in technology facilitated more daring and stylish designs throughout the decade. By the 1960s, the era of motorways began, leading to larger coaches capable of higher speeds. Styles evolved accordingly, with maximum lengths reaching 12 meters by the decade's end.

The popularity of continental coach holidays surged, prompting European manufacturers to enter the UK market with executive and high-floor coaches. Despite a slow start in 1972, foreign chassis manufacturers, led by Volvo, dominated the market within fifteen years, relegating domestically-built coaches to a minority.
Tim Machin's book vividly chronicles these transformations, enriched with captivating imagery.

National Express Coaches

Although several coaching pools for express services were established in the late 1920s, it was not until 1972, three years after the formation of the National Bus Company, that a nationwide, fully coordinated express coach network came into being under the National banner.
With coaches provided by the various NBC subsidiaries, National Express dominated the scene and continues to do so today despite opposition from other major operators.

Over its forty-five years of existence it has introduced numerous innovative features and developed a motorway network of routes, some of which have been operated by double-deck vehicles, and has become a familiar sight across the whole of the UK.
In this book, the history of National Express is covered comprehensively by author Keith Jenkinson in both text and photographs.
