Forgive me my probley first stupid Question, looing at old pictures of the buses in the past in Lcpt fleet it started as A1 we did have buses when the tram's ( they had different #'s) where running so did the #'s start at just 1? and because we had a lot of depots did they have letter's I.E GL1 ( Green Lane)

LCPT had buses & trams. The buses number system from the fifties (if i remember correctly) comprised the make of bus, & number ie A for AEC, L for Leyland, D for Daimler, C for Crossley .

Thank's for that Merseywall, so now how about the trams? were the #'s in any particular sequence? I do remember very vecular ( sorry not a good speller) mum & dad saying right next week we are going to NEW BRIGHTON well as kids that an adventure way back in then but it's not straight there we have to change a couple of times? bus, tram, ferry, bus, then after a great day we did it vice-versa, Mum & Dad was happy they had given us a good day out and didn't cost them a fortune ( got the train /tram rides for free & a new bucket and spade in new brighton) do remember school holiday's? spud picking & going for rides on our bike our kids said what for? to have money of your own, yea so how much did you get around 1 pound a week what's that in Dollars ( we still had pound's then over here your mam said) but about $3 rip off kids hey

Merseywail, just another little question ( you seem to know a lot) were LCPT buses alway's Green I have seen some pictures you have put up I.E 1951 were Green but I remember ( don't but HEARD HA HA) that after the ww2 car dealer's used to say you can have any colour you want as long as it was black, in between the war's have you any photo's of old LCPT buses? also remember you said that about the open day at page moss did you ever put the pictures up?
