    history of bus manufacturers in birmingham

    Birmingham University has an interesting website which includes some pages about bus manufacturers, including AJS, LVL, GUY, and SUNBEAM. the main museum site address is:-

    http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/home.htm

    if you click on the museum logo and then on the doors of the museum, and then on the door marked 'transport' there are four manufacterers in a list which you can click on to read the history, they include pics.

    to get straight to the four makers:-

    http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/Museum/Transport/Buses/Guy/guybuses.htm

    http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/Museum/Transport/Buses/Sunbeam.htm

    http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/Museum/Transport/Buses/ajs.htm

    http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/Museum/Transport/Buses/LVL.htm

    didn't know AJS made buses, never heard of LVL, LIGHT VEHICLES LIMITED.

    apparently Birmingham had a bigger tram and trolley network than London
