I am writing to let you know where we are with the publication of books as our records show you have pre-ordered one or more of our forthcoming titles.
Cov1d-19 has caused the ‘English Bus Handbook – coaches’ book, which was planned for spring 2020, to be cancelled. Since our initial draft at least eight operators we expected to include, notably Shearings and Travel deCoursey, have already ceased trading while others are changing and reducing vehicle strength to match the new demand. The situation is very fluid and therefore we have decided to await a more certain position before proceeding with our seventh edition books which will be under the British title and include some notable Welsh and Scottish fleets.
Our next two books will be British Bus Handbook – Smaller Groups 7 and British Bus Handbook – Notable Independents 7, the first of which is currently with the printers for publication next week. A new British Bus Handbook – Coaches 7 will follow.
