Swiss Postbuses 2019 edition

Swiss Postbuses

The revised and much enlarged version of the Swiss Railways Society publication Swiss PostBuses was released in April 2019. Now in A4 hardback with 208 pages, the book provides a company history and fleet description in much greater detail than before, thanks to significant contributions from expert enthusiasts in the UK and Switzerland. Chapters include a description of trials with experimental motor buses in 1906 and the subsequent evolution of bus design, particularly for the demanding conditions of Alpine routes. Acquisition and/or disposal details, and information on fleet re-numbering, is provided in detailed appendices for as many vehicles as possible. Arrangements for the contracting-out of many routes and the evolution of bus livery are explained and there is a brief resumé of ticketing. The past & present fleet (currently totaling over 2,200 vehicles) is illustrated profusely with 526 colour photographs and a further 132 in black-and-white. The description of the present-day network has been updated and is accompanied by 10 new maps.  This is expected to become the “go to” reference book on the subject. the price is £28.00 plus £3.50 postage.
