Classic Bus Magazine

6 issues per year   |  English
9 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Automotive)
From £3.33 per issue
A beautifully designed and intelligent magazine, packed with well-written articles – all superbly illustrated – about different aspects of bus and coach operation, the vehicles we learned to love or hate, interesting companies, people that shaped the industry, plus personal reminiscences and factual stories. Some are shamelessly nostalgic, some controversial, but every piece is written by people who have a lifelong devotion and unquenchable passion for this interest. Many writers are well-known figures in the industry, bringing a fresh perspective that keeps the magazine relevant to today’s readers.

Classic Bus

Apr/May 2024 Daimler was once a significant bus chassis manufacturer and our delve into the Bus Archive this time has revealed a brochure the company produced in the 1960s to trumpet itself and showcase its models. On a slightly different scale, we discover how bus manufacturers were involved in building taxis, too.   There’s more about coach stations in London, both near King’s Cross and south of the river at Kennington. And we have another bus under a bridge (only it’s an arch!), more buses on postcards, and another view from on high, this one looking down on a bus in Warrington. This issue also sees the start of a new series by Mike Fenton on lesser-known coach body builders, kicking off with Kenex, as well as more buses leaning over and an explanation about hexagonal destination screens.   The world changed significantly for municipal operators in 1973, and in this issue Thomas Knowles remembers what it was like in Lancaster and Morecambe, where he had been newly appointed at the time. Plus there’s our popular, lively and well-illustrated Forum section with topics ranging far and wide, and a look at some new books.
