© Local Transport History Society 2014-2016


We produce free illustrated booklets covering much of the UK’s transport history from steam tramways to the early municipal and independent bus networks. In PDF format they are readable on any PC, laptop, Apple or Android device with the Adobe reader and represent an alternative to paper books. All publications are produced by the Local Transport History Society, a division of the Lancashire United Transport Society (Registered Charity No. 1125835).

The Adobe DC Reader for Windows, Mac Os, iPhone/iPad, Android phones and tablets can be downloaded HERE.
