1st Merseyside Branch of the Tramway and Light
Railway Society talk of 2018
ON Monday, 15 January 2018, within the Rathbone Room,
at The Greenbank Sports Academy, on Greenbank Lane, Liverpool (L17 1AG), the
Merseyside Branch of the Tramway and Light Railway Society will be holding a
talk called:- "Story of Crosville Motor Services Limited." This
talk will be presented via the Chairman of Online Transport Archives, Charles
Roberts and starts at 8.00pm. Refreshments will be served during the interval.
Everyone is welcome and we look forward to your company. Cost is just ₤2.00 per
head, per person. If you do not already know, Crosville Motor Services Limited
became 1 of the major bus groups prior to 1966, with origins back as far as
1857. The real story begins between 1906 and 1911 and is a fascinating insight
into the birth of a family concern, whose bus empire, based in Chester, extended
from North West England to most of North and Mid Wales. Its most lucrative area,
unsurprisingly, was Merseyside.
