|The second book in the series, consisting
of a massive 332 pages, is the ultimate point of reference for details
and facts of all the buses which have formed part of the KMB fleet since
1933. It also provides details of liveries, insignia, registration numbers,
fleet numbering, depots, fares, tickets and ticket collection and route
development over the years.
The book shown on the left is the official
Hong Kong publication and was customised to KMB's requirements, having
a slightly different title and cover design. Otherwise it is identical
to the book shown on the right, which is the edition sold outside Hong
Kong and titled 'Volume 2'.
UPDATE - 22nd July 2008 ***
|This book was originally published in 1995
and two printings sold out very rapidly. Following new expressions of interest,
Publishing published a reprint to
eliminate as many of the annoying typographical errors which were a major
criticism of the original book.
The book is A4, 336 pages with over 500 illustrations
of which 113 are in colour. It is expected that it will be available mid
August and will retail for £29.95, an increase on the original price
reflecting the limited run and digital process, the latter being more expensive
than conventional printing methods.
Please note that this book is also available
in Hong Kong from 80M Bus Model Shop, where it has been printed under agreement
with DTS Publishing.
