BRITISH BUSES ABROAD Issue number 38, September 2018,

This is an intriguing article about trolleybuses in Singapore. A look at British-built buses in Las Palmas in 1969 is told by Barry Wilkinson. Photographs of interesting buses in service at this time are included. South Africa was once a good market for Guy buses as told by Peter Myers in his article. The letters page is covered by the Correspondence and Queries column which is a good forum for readers to comment on previous articles, provide additional information and forward interesting photographs for publication. A popular section of the magazine are the news pages. In this issue news from Australia, Europe, New Zealand and North America is covered.
The covers for the September issue feature a picture of the Alexander Dennis Super Lo Enviro 500 which is only 3.91 metres high and wrapped for service in New York City. A feature of BBA is to show both front and rear views on the appropriate covers. The Editor of BBA – – is always pleased to hear from readers with their observations and items for publication in future issues
