LTSV-LTA in wordsLTSV LT Archive is a collection of scans of London Transport documents from the period 1944-1994. Most of the documents are concerned with the road vehicle fleet (buses and service vehicles, with some coverage of trolleybuses).The scans were originally done by John Marshall several years ago, and although of generally low quality, they provide a uniquely detailed view of changes to the vehicle fleets during the period.
The original collection included just over 40,000 images (some documents had several pages). Work to add all of these is still ongoing, and the current situation is shown in the box on the right.

The site went 'live' last weekend and has now been tested, tweaked and titivated. There are still a further 10,000 documents yet to be catalogued and added but I think I need to take a break from this and try to catch up with some of my other projects. Please do get in touch (using the Contact Us button above) if you have any comments or suggestions.
