The former part-time coach driver said: “My book came to fruition and in just 11 weeks is finished and now at the printers, thanks in part to the fast response from many people in the area who have sent me photos, stories and anecdotes. This coupled with hundreds of photos that I have been sent and allowed to use from coach ‘spotters’ nationwide.”
