About the Author

Following a successful career in the computer industry, redundancy permitted author Kevin Warrington to fulfill a long-held ambition to operate his own specialist coach company.  Based in Hampshire, he operated three 1950s-era motor coaches for weddings and private hire along with extensive film and TV work. An enthusiast for all vintage machinery, his interest in the subject was firmly established as a child when family visits involved journeys on Guy buses. An accomplished photogragher and writer, he has written books on classic transport subjects, and has been editor of specialist club magazines and an occasional contributor to classic car publications.
