Priced at 19.50, we are also asking for an additional 1.00 to be paid to cover postage and packing costs within the UK, and kindly ask any international customers to contact us prior to ordering to ensure the best rate for shipping.

Fleet lists updated and other news     Date added: 20/10/2017
  Fleet lists updated and other news

After a short delay, we at Woolybus are pleased to announce that an update has been carried out to the fleet lists that we have on our web site, all of which are available for purchase.

The most notable changes in this latest update are:

    - the RATP London listing also now includes the Epsom Coaches/Quality Line operation;
    - Diamond Bus within Rotala also includes the recently acquired bus operation of Hansons of Stourbridge

While mentioning this news, we thought we would also take the opportunity to update on a few other things going on in the world of Woolybus.

Over the next few months, in response to a couple of requests, there are a number of companies which we will be adding to the list of those for which we have fleet lists available. Most of these are independents from various parts of the country, and we are sure that you will find them to be of interest.

We are also working on a long-term project producing various old fleet lists, at the moment concentrating on the London Country operation. Over the next few days, more fleet lists will be appearing as a result of that.

As you may also be aware, we have dipped our toes into the world of book production. It is now approaching a year since our first fleet book hit the shelves, with 2017 Fleet Books for Stagecoach, FirstGroup, Go-Ahead and Arriva having been produced with huge success. Our next book, the 2018 London Bus Fleet Book is currently at the printers and should arrive with us in the next couple of weeks (although we anticipate that being sooner), and work will shortly be starting on the next book, the 2018 Stagecoach Fleet Book. We have also drawn up a list of other books which we will be producing during the 2018 season, and will keep you all updated as time progresses.

To order any of these products, either visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Another book coming from Woolybus...     Date added: 09/10/2017
  Another book coming from Woolybus...

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce the pending release of our next book. Following on with the success of the Fleet Books that we have produced covering Stagecoach, FirstGroup, Go-Ahead and Arriva, we have produced our first regional book, in the shape of the 2018 London Bus Fleet Book.

Consisting of 235 pages and containing over 150 full colour photographs from Brian Cheyney, we are expecting this book to be extremely popular - we have already sealed trade orders for nearly 100 copies before it has arrived from the printers.

Priced slightly more than our other publications due to the increased printing cost as a result of the increased pages, this book is still competitively priced at 19.50, and is up to date to the end of September (with a few last-minute early October updates making it in). For orders through Woolybus, we are also asking that 1.00 is additionally paid to help cover postage and packing costs within the UK. International customers, we kindly ask that you contact us first before placing your order in order to get the best shipping cost.

This book is now available to pre-order from us through our web site, or by calling us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744. All orders placed prior to arrival of the books from the printers (expected within two to three weeks from now) will be despatched as soon as the books arrive.
