The London Dennis Dart & Dart SLF (Pen & Sword)

1 In Stock

Introduced in 1989 the Dennis Dart became one of the most successful midibuses in the UK. The bodywork was supplied by Carlyle, Wrightbus, Reeve Burgess, Plaxton, Alexander and Wadham Stringer. A large number were taken into stock by London operators, replacing many of the smaller midibuses.

A low-floor version, the Dart SLF, was introduced in 1995 and like the step-entrance Dart this model also became popular with operators around the United Kingdom, as well as Hong Kong. In 2001, Transbus took over production, only to revert to the Alexander Dennis name in 2005.

The last Darts entered service in London during 2007, after which time the Enviro 200 took over as the new single-decker midibus being purchased by operators. The London Dennis Dart & Dart SLF provides a history of this popular London single-decker, from its introduction to its demise.

Well-illustrated throughout with colour photographs of vehicles working for each London operator. Hardback. 208 pages.
