ABC Ribble Buses & Coaches

This ABC spotters booklet focussed on Ribble Motor Services, based in Preston, Lancashire, along with the subsidiary company of W C Standerwick, provided bus and coach services over vast swathes of North West England.

The cover is by the prolific scaperboard artist and illustrator A N Wolstenholme and shows 1248, a 1950 East Lancashire Coachworks bodied Leyland Titan PD2/3 (OCK 219) alongside fleet number 298, a 1951 Leyland Royal Tiger Cub PSU1/13 single deck bus (ECK 561). Preston based Ribble favoured the products of Leyland Motors who built vehicles just down the road from the head office.
