A specialised subject, for a niche market, but very well done. The history of the fleet of just which, over the period covered, comprised a total of just over 300 vehicles, was easy to follow and, for the period this reviewer has first-hand knowledge (1973-83) accurate.
Three minor points; 1. the development of the routes served could have been more detailed. A map might have helped, although I appreciate that most readers of such a specialist book would be familiar with the city. 2. the table at the end only gave the dates of building the various secondhand vehicles that were added to the fleet - one had to cross-refer to the text (or the date of withdrawal of the previous owner of the number) to determine the dates they entered service with Lincoln. 3. It would also have been of interest to know the later fates of those vehicles in stock when the undertaking was sold.
