For road transport enthusiasts there are a number of dates indelibly engrained on the brain: when the next issue of Buses. Classic Bus or Bus & Coach Preservation is due, for example. For countless thousands, the end of August is an equally important period as it represents the date that the latest edition of Buses Yearbook is due. For more than four decades, Buses Yearbook, has been appearing like clockwork, providing the enthusiast with a fascinating selection of articles and photo-features on wide range of historic and contemporary subjects. This August is no different as the 2005 edition of the book hits the streets. Drawing upon the knowledge and photographic collections of many of the most notable commentators on the subject, editor Stewart J. Brown has again gathered a wide-ranging portrait of the bus and coach industry in the British Isles and overseas. For this year's edition, former Buses editor Stephen Morris recalls the history of Optare, a manufacturer that emerged from the demise of Charles H. Roe and which is now one of the country's foremost producers, Michael Baker recalls the Midland Red operations in and around the Ironbridge Gorge, Stewart Brown himself examines the modern trend towards three-axle double-deckers, Geoff Mills portrays the last of the traditional double-deck designs to emerge from Bristol (the VRT) and Roy Marshall pays a pictorial tribute to the trolleybus in Britain.
