London's Pre-War Smaller Classes: C, STD, LTC, TF, CR (Capital)

4 In Stock

One of London Transport’s main aims for its bus fleet was that of standardisation, but there were inevitable needs for vehicles that were more suited to specific requirements. This detailed and well illustrated book covers the stories of the smaller classes bought prior to the beginning of the Second World War in 1939.

An introduction to London's need for smaller buses before the Second World War is followed by chapters covering each of the five types of vehicle purchased:

  • The C Class
  • The Hendon Titans: STD 1-100
  • Six Wheeled Luxury: The LTC Class
  • Underfloor Engines: The TF Class
  • Engines at the Back: The CR Class

Each chapter provides a well-illustrated history of the vehicle type, examining the design, operation and requirement for the vehicles.

Hardback. 144 pages.
