We know many of you use shopping apps to get money back on your online shopping such as Quidco, but it would help if just once in a while you made a small donation from your shop to the Local Transport History Library - it won’t cost you a penny - all you have to do is sign up. It all helps to keep this site FREE for everyone.

Welcome to The Local Transport History Library

Our FREE illustrated PDF booklets cover the period up to de-regulation in 1986 and contain a potted history and basic fleet list for quick reference. More detailed information can usually be obtained commercially elsewhere.

All our booklets are produced with the goodwill and co-operation of many individuals and organisations without whom this website would not be possible (see ‘Site Information’ for credits).
