Midland Red Coaches, Paperback / softback Book

Midland Red Coaches Paperback / softback


Throughout their existence from 1904 until 1981, the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company were an idiosyncratic operator whose operational area covered an area from the Welsh Marches and Shropshire in the West to Northamptonshire and Rutland in the East and from Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire in the South to Staffordshire and Derbyshire in the North.

Much of their area was distinctly rural but in the Birmingham and the Black Country, Worcester and Hereford, Stafford and Leicester, intense urban services were operated mainly by double-decker buses and it is these buses that this volume examines. Looking at the coaches that formed a part of this iconic fleet, David Harvey utilises his collection of rare and unpublished images to explore the fascinating world of Midland Red coaches.
