Compiled by the National Association of Road Transport Museums, the new 2008 edition has been thoroughly updated and once again includes color illustrations throughout. The book is divided into sections dealing with museums which are normally open to the public, other collections of preserved buses and coaches, a section listing vehicles privately preserved by members of the British Bus Preservation Group and finally a list of operators of heritage bus services around the country.The bus preservation movement has more of a local rather than a national profile. It is more dispersed and less well known nationally than its counterpart on rails, the heritage railroad sector. Information on some projects can be hard to come by for potentially interested members of the public to whom a collection of preserved buses can have as much of a nostalgic appeal as any preserved railroad. This makes the need for a publication such as this all the greater. This is a detailed and accessible handbook packed with useful information for the road transport enthusiast- the essential guide for anyone interested in this field.
