Complete description

A valuable addition to the popular "Glory Days" series, this book chronicles the story of Lancashire United Transport and the South Lancashire Tramways Co. from its origins in the early 20th century through to the end of its independent existence. Taken over by Greater Manchester PTE in 1976, Lancashire United Transport was at that date the country's largest independent operator of buses and coaches, bringing to an end a history of independent operation that stretched back 75 years.It was in 1901 that the South Lancashire Tramways Co opened the bulk of its network, but financial problems resulted in a new company, Lancashire United Transport, taking over in 1905. The LUT network, gradually expanded so that in the end, it operated a complex network of routes linking places such as Bolton, Salford and St Helens. Ted Jones, a well-respected historian of public transport in and around his native Manchester, examines in detail the history and operational record of this highly influential operator. Drawing upon his own detailed records as well as those of other transport historians, this book chronicles the whole story of LUT/SLT and will be of interest to historians and bus enthusiasts alike.
