The book tells the story of an ECW-bodied Leyland bus being in preservation for three times as long as she served Southdown. After recording briefly 677's early life, this book tells about her 42 years in her present ownership, describing work done, events attended, places visited and the pains and pleasures of retaining for posterity this charming piece of British transport heritage. There is also an account of all 25 of the vehicles of 677's batch covering aspects of their lives from ordering and delivery through to their twilight years, including an extensive picture gallery of 78 photographs. For good measure a chapter is included about 1650, the former Southdown Royal Tiger coach that after a working life of seventeen years in the UK spent more than 40 in Malta before repatriation by the author.

Few stockists have taken on the book to date therefore at this stage a somewhat hard to find book, with a short print run and a niche audience, it still is likely to sell out within a short spell considering many books on Southdown topics. This book will be made available both on our stall as well as our online store while we hold stock, which is unlikely to be discounted from any trader, in which only undermines a quality book.
Those books we feel have a less than high quality content and finish will not be sold on our site.
