Old LOTS publications added     Date added: 20/06/2020
 
Old LOTS publications added

As has been announced previously, we acquired a large amount of old PSV Circle news sheets and LOTS publications just before the current coronavirus pandemic, and have been gradually sorting through and cataloguing exactly what we acquired.

The full set of PSV Circle news sheets have already been made available, and have been grouped by year and by area, and are available to purchase on our web site. We have since made a start on the large amount of publications from LOTS (London Omnibus Traction Society) and have started with the majority of their "The London Bus" (TLB) publication, a monthly newsletter, which we acquired.

Now available to purchase are full sets by year of TLBs covering the years 1989 to 2014, as well as 2016. It is intended that full sets for 2015, 2017 and 2018 will be added in the next few days.

Linking from the top right corner of the front page on our web site is a PDF file which lists all of the items that we have so far catalogued and made available on our web site, along with showing those which are no longer available, and is updated on a weekly basis. The current PDF (dated 20th June) has just been uploaded to the web site as well and is available for viewing.

Should you wish to purchase any of these publications, or anything on our web site, either place your order through our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Remaining old PSV Circle news sheets now available

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce that we have now completed the addition to the web site of all of the old PSV Circle news sheets that we have available.

The final batch of news sheets includes:
London minor operators for 1984 and 1985
Southern major operators for 1985
Southern minor operators for 1973 to 1985
Northern major operators for 1985
Northern minor operators for 1973 to 1985
1993 - areas 5 and 6
1994 - areas 5 and 6

Now that we have completed this task, we will next be moving on to adding the various LOTS publications which we acquired just prior to the coronavirus lockdown, and hope to complete the addition of the various TLBs (The London Bus - the monthly newsletter) over the next couple of weeks.

To order any of these news sheets, or indeed anything that we have available, either visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Further old PSV Circle news sheets available     Date added: 06/06/2020
 
Further old PSV Circle news sheets available

Over the past week, we have continued to list the old PSV Circle news sheets which we had acquired just prior to the current Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown, and have nearly completed the task of getting the all listed.

We have just added the following news sheets:
Midlands - 1969 to 1972
Midlands (minor operators) - 1973 to 1983
Central (minor operators) - 1984
Northern (major operators) - 1973 to 1984
Southern (major operators) - 1980 to 1984
Area 7 (Yorkshire) - 1993
All areas - 2016 to 2018

All of these vary in price, and can be found in the "old PSV Circle news sheets" section. With these additions, it means that we have the full set from 1995 to 2018 available, plus most of the sheets going back to 1973, and aim to complete this by next week (Saturday 13th June).

Once these have been added, we will then move on to adding the various publications from LOTS (London Omnibus Traction Society) that we have acquired.

To order any of these items, or anything that we have available, simply visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Further old PSV Circle news sheets available     Date added: 23/05/2020
 
Further old PSV Circle news sheets available

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce that we have made a further inroad into getting the old PSV Circle news sheets that we recently acquired listed on our web site.

At this stage, we are roughly halfway through the process, with still some way to go. WIth the exception of those which have sold already, we have PSV Circle news sheets covering the whole country for between 1973 and 2018, and are making these available on the basis of one area (for those post 1992) per year, and for those pre-1992, one part area (minor operators constitutes one part of an area, major operators the other part of an area) per year.

In the latest batch to be added to the web site, we have added the following:
London 1970-1972
Eastern Majors 1973-1983
Eastern Minors 1973-1981
Southern Majors 1973-1979
London Majors 1984 and 1985
1998 - Areas 1 to 6 inclusive
1999 - all 9 areas
2005 - all 9 areas
2007 - Area 2 added to complete the full year
2008 - all 9 areas

Over the next couple of weeks, we aim to get the remainder of the old PSV Circle news sheets listed on the web site before turning our attentions to adding more of the old LOTS publications which we have also acquired.

The weekly PDF has also been updated to reflect these additions, with the new additions highlighted in yellow in that PDF which can be accessed from the top right corner of the front page to our web site.

To order any of these items, or anything that we have listed on our site, either visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

More old PSV Circle news sheets available     Date added: 16/05/2020
 
More old PSV Circle news sheets available

Over the past week, we have been busy sorting through a wide variety of items that we have recently acquired and are gradually getting them all added onto the web site.

Just added to the web site and now available are news sheets covering 1986 to 1992, and unless stated otherwise are available at 6.50 per area per year with postage included in that price by Royal Mail 2nd Class.

The PDF file which links from the link on the top right corner of our web site front page has also been updated to reflect those which have become available on our web site from today (16th May 2020).

We still have a large amount of stock to sort through, covering old PSV Circle news sheets and old LOTS publications. At this stage, while everything is still in the process of being listed, if there is anything in particular that you are looking for that isn't listed, there is a very high chance we have got it in stock - if this is the case, please contact us and we'll happily advise if we can assist. There are TLBs (The London Bus) covering from 1989 to 2018, with each year available as a set, we have numerous other SUPs (Supplement) from LOTS.

To purchase anything that we have available or to contact us, either visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Old PSV Circle news sheets available     Date added: 09/05/2020
 
Old PSV Circle news sheets available

Just before the start of the current coronavirus lockdown, we acquired a large amount of old PSV Circle news sheets, with sheets going back to 1973 covering the whole of the UK, and a couple of areas going back to the mid-to-late 1960s. We are gradually going through all of these and making them available once we have checked that they are complete, and noted any parts which have been found to be missing.

As part of this, we are pleased to announce that we have already added quite a few of these news sheets to the web site which are available for purchase. These news sheets are grouped by region and by year (for example, Greater London for all of 1995). There is also a weekly-updated PDF which is downloadable from the front page of our web site, and details all of the news sheets that we currently have available as well as what we will be adding to the web site in due course.

If there is a particular region and year that you are looking for which has yet to be listed on the web site, that doesn't necessarily mean we do not have it - if you don't see it listed, simply contact us either through the web site or by phone, and we can soon tell you if we can help. At this stage, it's highly likely that it would be in the pending list due to the sheer volume of news sheets and other items that we have acquired.

To purchase these news sheets, or anything else that we have on our web site, either visit our web site or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Woolybus fleet lists updated     Date added: 02/04/2020
 
Woolybus fleet lists updated

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce an update has been undertaken on the fleet lists that we have on our web site, with the updated fleet lists now available.

There were no notable changes reflected in this latest update, although we do hope to be able to cover the National Express acquisition of Lucketts Group with the next update.

To purchase the updated fleet lists, either place your order through our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Coronavirus update     Date added: 30/03/2020
 
Coronavirus update

We at Woolybus have a number of announcements to make in relation to the currently coronavirus outbreak, and how it has affected operations at Woolybus. Detailed below are a number of changes that we have made or will be making in the near future as a result of this.

2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book
Unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the forthcoming 2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book until after things have got back to normal. Due to the nature of this outbreak, we cannot give any details of a timescale on the release of this title.

This has also affected our intentions with the fortcoming 2020 Anglia and East Midlands book, and the 2020 Go-Ahead Fleet Book which have also been suspended until further notice. These books will however follow after the FirstGroup book once normality resumes.

While the coronavirus has affected the production of our fleet books, it doesn't mean that we will not be producing any books during that time. We have a couple of ideas which we are discussing about putting into production, and will update in due course on those.

Attending bus rallies
Understandably, as a result of the Government advice and guidelines, the bus rally calendar for 2020 has been absolutely descimated, particularly up until the summer. This coming weekend, we were due to attend two bus rallies, one at Detling on Saturday 4th April, and the other at Brooklands on Sunday 5th April. This caused us to have an idea of if we can't get you to the rallies, then we'll bring the rally special offers to you.

From 8am on Saturday 4th April until 8pm on Sunday 5th April, we will have a wide range of special offers on the web site for our books, models and anything else that we would have had for sale on our stall at these events. There will however be a small postage charge on all orders under 150, and will advise of those details on Friday (3rd April).

Models, PSV Circle news sheets and LOTS publications
We have recently taken into stock a large amount of models, PSV Circle news sheets, publications from the London Omnibus Traction Society, as well as a number of DVDs. Due to the volume, it is taking us some time to get these added onto the web site although we aim to have at least the models and LOTS publications listed on the web site by the weekend for the "rally" event. Details of what models there are and their pricing will also be found on our web site.

With all that is going on, first and foremost we wish that you all keep yourselves in good health, and most of all, follow the Government advice of staying home, helping to protect the NHS and as a result, save lives. Keep yourselves safe.

Increase to postage charges     Date added: 21/03/2020
 
Increase to postage charges

With effect of Monday 23rd March 2020, Royal Mail are increasing their prices to send items. While we at Woolybus have done our best to freeze postage prices, unfortunately we have found ourselves having to increase some of the prices that we charge for postage and packing, which are effective with immediate effect.

The pricing changes that we have made are as follows:

For orders totalling 49.99 or under:
Royal Mail 1st Class Standard increases from 3.50 to 4.00
Royal Mail Signed For increases from 4.50 to 5.00

For orders totalling between 50.00 and 149.99:
Royal Mail 1st Class Standard increaes from 5.50 to 6.00
Royal Mail Signed For increases from 6.50 to 7.00

Special Delivery (next day) charges will remain as they are, as will charges for delivery by DPD courier.

Our books are also affected by this increase in postage charges, with postage and packing now increasing from 1.50 per book (included within the price at the checkout) to 2.00 per book.

Further details of these pricing details can be found on our Delivery page.

Coming soon - 2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book     Date added: 19/03/2020
 
Coming soon - 2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce the pending release of our latest title which is now at the printers, in the shape of the 2020 edition of our FirstGroup Fleet Book.

Consisting of 160 pages and containing over 120 full-colour photos, this book is a must for all who follow FirstGroup. Up to date to mid-March, this book covers all of the rail and bus operations within FirstGroup in the mainland UK.

This title is priced at 18.00, and ask for 2.00 towards postage and packing (this price increase reflects postage pricing increases to take effect from the weekend of 21st March 2020)  within the UK. We kindly ask that international customers contact us prior to ordering to ensure the best shipping rates.

To pre-order your copy, either visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.
