Although developed by AECMoreThe Routemaster bus is a universally recognised symbol of London. Developed in the 1950s, it has been a familiar sight on the streets of the capital for half a century and still operates on selected heritage routes today. Although developed by AEC for London Transport, Routemasters were sold initially to Northern General and second-hand vehicles were later part of the fleets of other operators throughout Britain.

Although its open-platform design ultimately led to it being phased out in London in 2005, it is regarded by many as a twentieth-century icon of British design. This volume tells the story of the Routemasters development and operational history in London and elsewhere, accompanied by approximately 100 colour illustrations of the vehicle from prototypes through the changing operational scene of the last fifty years to its continuing existence today.

Written by a well-known authority on the subject, Michael Baker has a number of best-selling titles to his name.
