I was in London in 2007 and came across the Routemaster buses on a couple of routes including Tower Hill (I thought they had all been retired by then). Being somewhat of a bus enthusiast I went for a ride on one of these `real' buses then decided to look up on Amazon in late 2009 for any books that may be available about the Routemaster. Well I found this book and purchased it. In a word, the 'Routemaster Omnibus' book is incredible!! The book combines three bestselling titles and this makes for one fantastic book. The information is superb and the inclusion of high quality photos, mostly in colour is a real bonus. For anyone with an interest in buses, or for that matter the U.K., then you will really enjoy this book. My thanks to the books' authors (whom I have never met). You have given me hours of reading pleasure!!

Three books in one very reasonably priced volume and a wealth of beautiful images of the Routemasters. Neatly divided into sections with an explanatory few paragraphs per section and then a grand selection of photographs to portray what has been mentioned, this book is a must for all Routemaster enthusiasts. With over fifty years of service in London and the provinces how many can say that the Routemaster was the bus they grew up with. The last bus designed for London the Routemaster saw off it's replacements in the shape of the Daimler Fleetlines, the Titans, the Metrobuses, the Metropolitan MDs, the Olympians, and even to some extent the Merlins, Swifts and Leyland Nationals, and only the lobbyists of the accessability brigade finally brought to an end London's tradition of the hop on and off rear platformed bus and the Routemaster was the last of this design.

Thank goodness for the people who were able to buy and restore some of the fleet before the cutter's torch could destroy them, long may these wonderful vehicles survive.

As an enthusiast myself I have a large collection of photos of the Routemasters at work and, with all the various photographic books I have collected over the years one thought keeps coming to mind - would it be possible to create a book to feature every single one of the Routemasters and a potted history of each. A book to have a photograph of all 2760 London Routemasters individually and, of course the RMFs of Northern General, the FRM and others of the class, would be a true tribute to the buses we have grown to love over the fifty plus years they have trundled our roads. Some have had a busy life donning different liveries, being redesigned, sold abroad, privately restored, Showbuses, etc and yet there are also those of the class who had a comparatively mundane life but wouldn't it be wonderful to see them all in one book (or maybe a couple!) now that they are so rare and so missed?

The Routemaster story has all but passed into legend as the best ever bus designed for use in the capital city and beyond. Page after page of photos and plenty of info too. If you like Routemasters, You'll love this!

This book brings together three titles under one cover and contains some excellent (mainly colour) photos with good descriptive text
A "must have" book for any fan of the iconic Routemaster
