Best of British Buses No. 2 The AEC Q Family

By Alan Townsin, highly respected author of the history of bus marques.

The AEC 'Q' was another revolutionary  concept designed by John Rackham. Rackham had worked for Yellow Coach in USA and was aware of the Twin Coach by Walter Fageol, which had two motors mounted one each side of the chassis driving the rear wheels.

The Q took this further, into double and single decker forms, with petrol or diesel engines and fluid flywheel transmission.

 

The book deals in detail with the development of the Q

Mechanicals, body types and AEC company history is covered.

Tram Destination roll Rushcutters Bay depot

Unique and priceless. The side roof destination box blind probably from an R /R1 class car just prior to the closure of the depot in July 1960.

From the 1930s this depot had only corridor cars, perhaps for the enhanced comfort of better-off Eastern Suburbs travellers.

The roof side box being lower in height than the front and rear boxes, did not carry coloured symbols.

Complete in exceptional good condition.

Each destination name is about 4 inches / 100mm high.
