  Coming soon - our first printed publication

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of our first printed publication, entitled "The Borismaster - Wright's New Bus for London".

Consisting of 144 pages, including over 120 photographs, the majority of which are courtesy of Brian Cheyney, along with others from Kevin Cooper, Keith Wood and Billy Birkett, this exciting publication looks at a brief history at the iconic London vehicles, looking at each route conversion since their introduction, along with details of the various advertising campaigns that have been seen on the New Routemasters within London. There are also chassis and body number details, as well as dates of first entry into service.

This book is due to arrive from the printers mid-August, and we are now taking orders on this book, with all pre-orders being despatched as soon as the book arrives from the printers. The book is priced at 18.00, plus 1.00 postage and packing within the UK - for international customers, we politely request contacting us first to get the best shipping rates.

Orders can be placed through our web site, or by calling us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744

We will be completing the LCBS fleet lists on a yearly basis (June 1976, June 1977, etc) over the coming months before undertaking the same exercise with London Transport.

Technical problems with web site     Date added: 16/05/2016
  Technical problems accessing web site

Firstly, I offer my apologies if you find yourselves receiving numerous copies of this message from a number of sources, due to the need to get this message to as many people as possible.

It has been brought to my attention earlier today that the Woolybus web site had been inaccessible, with a load of error messages that only someone with an IT mind would be able to make head or tail of. Upon further investigation, it has been found that this problem has existed for over a week.

As a result of this technical problem, it was raised with the web site hosting company, and I am pleased to inform that the problem has been rectified and full access to the Woolybus web site has resumed. I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise to anyone who tried accessing the site in the past 7-10 days without success.
