I just saw a copy of the Bus World Encyclopedia of Buses offered for sale on eBay Motors under Manuals & Literature.
(Item #130356242472)
Price: $12.00 (No bids yet).
I'm not the seller, but this book is long out of print and is a very good bus enthusiast's guide.
Hurry, and good luck!

Bob,

I agree! I have it and it's an invaluable tool in my research.

If they're only asking a starting bid of $12, that's a real bargain because I've seen it offered for as much as $125!

Take a look at what I mean; http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0961983000/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all

Regards.

It is a small book, but very thick. One of these days, I hope I will have time to read it all. I sure miss the Bus World Magazine. It was the only one I know that geared itself towards the bus fan, and it covered current bus news.

busking,

Let me first welcome you to BusTalk and say that we look forward to your valued contributions.

I think that you'll find the Motor Bus Society's 'Motor Coach Age' equally as good if not better, in some respects, than Bus World was.

Membership is $35 per year and you can access them through their site if you haven't already done so;
