A new publication in preparation for our forthcoming 1970s weekend.

Contents:
1 The Shifting Seventies: A decade of turmoil.

3 Integration: Orange paint and underground railways.

4 Setting new Standards: A new bus for a new era.

5 Not quite standard: Not every SELNEC bus was a Standard bus.

6 Expansion: North Western absorbed and LUT acquired.

7 A new County: Local Government reform gives SELNEC a new name and brings in Wigan.

8 One that got away: While the sea of orange threatened to engulf everything, one little island of independence was to survive against the odds.

New The First Mancunian: Manchester 436's Story (book)

Product no.: 1017

Manchester's buses worked hard for their living, most then went for scrap and very few went on to other use. 436 was one and became a holiday chalet many miles from the city in a small village near Craven Arms in Shropshire. Rescued for preservation, it is now in the Museum for restoration. And there's more, for 436 is the first Crossley Mancunian, has one of the first all-Crossley steel-framed bodies and is the only surviving pre-war Manchester double-decker. This is 436's story.

Softback, 32 pages

100% of the income from every sale will go into the restoration fund for 1934 built Manchester Corporation 436 at the Museum of Transport.
