Hello and welcome to MDS Book Sales’ fortnightly blog!
We will endeavour to keep you updated with all things MDS.
There could be no better day to start this blog than today. Ahead of the Museum of Transport Greater Manchester’s Spring Transport Festival this weekend, we have had the pleasure of welcoming Peter Nash, retired Head of Stagecoach’s Commercial Policy and author of the Push Once book, to our store in Glossop to sign copies of Push Once.
Push Once, which chronicles 50 years of change, from the early 1960s to the present day, including a look behind the scenes at the successful delivery of the London 2012 Olympics transport requirements, will be launched this weekend at the Spring Transport Festival. Nash’s book has already attracted high levels of publicity, having been reviewed in Buses Magazine, Classic Bus Magazine, Bus & Coach Preservation, Route One and Coach & Bus Weekly and will no doubt be a top-seller. Also launching this weekend will be Super Prestige Number 28: Bury Corporation Transport. The latest volume of the Super Prestige Series continues Colin Reeve’s study of operations across the North West and includes the story of the trams and buses from their earliest days through to the takeover of the operation by the PTE. Both authors will be present at the MDS Book Sales stall at the Spring Transport Festival to sign copies of their respective books!
Keep an eye out for our next blog entry which will include a report and images from our time at the Spring Transport Festival and also from our day at the Lincoln Vintage Vehicle Museum’s Open Day! In the meantime, why not take a look at our website along with our Facebook and Twitter pages!
