Author : Robert Grieves

Cover : paperback
Price : £19.95

Central SMT formed a key part of Scotland's transport scene for half a century, providing the heavily industrialised areas of Clydeside and Lanarkshire with the extensive network of bus services that ensured it became a household name. Robert Grieves traces Central's origins and growth, along with the histories of the many smaller operators that it absorbed during its rapid expansion. Detailed captions accompany a collection of over 200 photographs, including a number of early colour shots. Well-known Glasgow, Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire locations provide backdrops for the Central SMT buses plying their routes, bringing back memories for all those who travelled on Central's distinctive red buses. Coverage finishes in 1981 when bus conductors finally gave way to one-man operation.
