AEC Lorries

Explores the story of one of the great British lorry manufacturers - AEC.

New transport legislation in the 1960s brought many changes, including weight and licencing rules. Lorries became larger and more powerful, carrying more weight, and ran much further afield, venturing into European countries and the Middle East.
As the years passed and lorries developed further, higher gross weights were introduced: currently, 44 tonnes are permitted in the UK for normal haulage.

This book looks to explore one of the most iconic and recognisable brands of British roads, using 180 rare and unpublished images.

The AEC Story - from the Regent to the Monarch

Van 1929 tot 1979 rolden er autobussen en vrachtwagens uit de AEC fabriek te Southall, Middlesex. Het bedrijf was verantwoordelijk voor de succesvolle Routemaster dubbeldekker bussen, die werden gebruikt door London Transport, evenals tal van andere bus-en vrachtwagenontwerpen.
In dit boek beschrijft Brian Thackray in detail de AEC bedrijfswagens van de jaren 20 en 30. Ook wordt aandacht besteed aan de ontwikkeling van de snel draaiende dieselmotor en de minder bekende militaire- en off-road ontwerpen evenals de treinstellen gebouwd voor de Great Western Railway.

AEC Mustang and Marshall

The AEC Mustang was announced in 1956 to be built at the former Maudslay works near Alcester. This twin-steering six wheeler 'Chinese Six' model was rated for 18 tons gross weight, placing it in the medium-weight range. Sales were moderate but the Mustang achieved some popularity as general haulage flats, tankers, box vans and tippers.
By 1962 the Mustang concept was being superseded by AEC's new Marshal 6 x 2 conventional, medium-weight six-wheeler. This offered a higher gross vehicle weight and a better payload than the Mustang. From 1964 Marshals enjoyed ten years of popularity as general haulage lorries, benefiting from the great increase in UK road transport following the Beeching decimation of the railways.
As the 1970s progressed they were increasingly replaced by articulated lorries, though they enjoyed continued sales to tipper operators, for quarries, as aggregate hauliers, for millers and cement firms. Several large users, such as the London Brick company, were still buying Marshals until the end of their production in 1977.

Graham Edge tells this story knowledgeably, and includes a large number of museum-quality archive photographs of Mustangs and Marshals at work in a wide variety of situations. The Appendices cover chassis designations and details as well as Mustang and Marshal engines.

AEC Single-Deckers

Even though it is nearly 40 years since the last vehicles left the Southall factory, the products of the Associated Equipment Company, more commonly known as AEC, are still synonymous with quality and reliability.

In this, the first of a series of two books, Howard Berry sets out to give a pictorial overview of the singledeck bus and coach chassis produced by AEC in the post-war years.

AEC vehicles were operated worldwide, and in this book the author presents photographs showing vehicles not only in service in the UK, but also abroad, mostly bodied locally, and these provide a contrast to the home-grown bodywork such as Plaxton and Duple that those in the UK will be more familiar with.
Vehicles such as the Regal, Reliance, Swift and Sabre are all detailed, with over 180 black and white and colour pictures, all with informative text.

AEC Double-Deckers

Even though it is nearly 40 years since the last vehicles left the Southall factory, the products of the Associated Equipment Company, more commonly known as AEC, are still synonymous with quality and reliability.

AEC were known as 'the builders of London's buses' and produced such iconic models as the RT and the Routemaster - the familiar red buses that symbolise London to people across the world, but there was much more to AEC than this.
Regents, Renowns and Bridgemasters all contributed to making AEC the byword for reliability in the PSV world.

In this, the second of a series of two books, Howard Berry sets out to give a pictorial overview of the bus chassis manufactured in the last years of double-deck bus production by AEC. With 180 informatively captioned photographs, almost all in colour, and all taken when these fine vehicles were in their operating heyday, this book is sure to appeal to enthusiasts of the AEC marque and the layman alike.

The Last Years of London's RFs and RTs - South of the Thames

The AEC Regal IVs and Regent IIIs, or to give them their class prefix letters RFs and RTs, are among the most revered buses to have served London over the years.
The RFs were maids of all work and were tailored for private hire work, Green Line coach work and ordinary stage bus work in both the central and country areas. The first of the type were introduced in October 1951 and a total of 700 vehicles were built for the London Transport Executive. They replaced virtually all the other types of single-deckers then operating in the metropolis.

The RT was first introduced to service in 1939 and production ran to 151 vehicles before construction ceased in early 1942. Following the war the Park Royal factory recommenced building the type in 1947 with the last new chassis being rolled out in 1954, taking the bonnet number RT4825.
Both types soldiered on throughout the 1970s as LTE encountered severe problems with their 'OPO' replacements before both finally bowed out within a week of each other in March/April 1979.

This account charts the last years of operation of both types from the mid-1970s onward, focusing on South London.
