Research into bus company

clock-timetable-wI have recently been looking into the history of the original Garelochhead Bus Company and its predecessors, with the eventual aim to put together a website.

My target is a website, but there is a considerable amount of work to be done before I would consider it a live website, especially regarding photographs etc.

One of the items I have come across is a local timetable published by Macneur & Bryden Ltd. dated October 1954, and a scan of the cover can be seen here. I was hoping that someone might have more information on these publications, such as how often were they produced or when did the last one appear?

Given that this one states it is Issue No.367, I presume that it is not a one off item. I would be very interested if anyone has any more information.

As an aside, following some enquiries I believe that the Garelochhead bus pictured on the beach in the Photo Gallery is MXX 177, one of the former London Transport RT class operated. It was repaired and put back into service.
