This new stand-alone volume chronicles the history of Barton and its vehicles from the operator's origins through to its demise and acquisition by Trent. The name of Barton was synonymous with bus operation in the East Midlands. The company, which was one of the largest independent operators in the British Isles, dominated stage carriage services in Nottinghamshire until its demise in the early 1990s. The company's origins date back to 1900, although the first regular service was not established until 1908 and, from these origins, a significant network of routes developed. The company's predominantly red buses were an eclectic mix of new and secondhand vehicles, many of which had been significantly modified in the company's own workshops Barton was the first bus operator to run an oil (i.e., diesel) bus. This descriptive new book includes informative text allied to 150 fascinating mono and color illustrations. An excellent addition to any transport enthusiast's collection.
