This review is from: The Lodekka Alternatives (Hardcover)
This is a welcome addition to a bus enthusiast's bookshelf. It jogged a few youthful memories for me of buses 60s style, North Western and Halifax Lolines, Yorkshire Woollen District Lowlanders, West Riding Wulfrunians, and Tynemouth Renowns. I never sampled a Bridgemaster though.
The choice of illustrations is generally good, though a picture of a Tynemouth Renown in its original red and cream colours would have been good, rather than the drab NBC yellow shown on p73. A pity about the error in the caption to this photo by the way.
The narrative is a good read, as is to be expected from Mr. Brown. I would have liked a bit more technical detail, however.
I would probably have given the book five stars, had it not been for the caption error referred to above. As a native of north East England, I found it quite irritating.
