Country Roads - new PHRG book

Some Municipal Rural Bus Services

This new book from the PHRG covers a novel subject on which little if anything has been written.  It describes a variety of unconventional operations by municipal undertakings, which did not fit into the usual pattern of corporation transport provision.  The routes described are all illustrated, and there are specially drawn maps as well as relevant timetables.

The subjects covered are services in Birkenhead, Barrow, Plymouth, Exeter, Todmorden, Blackburn and Darwen, Newport, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Walsall, and finally Southend, whose 18 ran to one of the least likely municipal destinations, Foulness Island.

The book is available to order now from MDS at £11.95 plus postage and may soon be available on their stalls at shows.
