LTSV in words

LTSV is a website about the road vehicles used by London Transport (and its successors) to support the tube, bus, tram and trolleybus networks in London. The random photos on this page should give you some idea of what sort of vehicles are included.
The backbone of this website is a database of all vehicles known to have been operated from the 1920s to the present. This database is constantly being updated with both new and historical information. There are also thousands of photographs, covering most of the same period, although naturally photos from before the 1950s are rather scarce.
For more background information, please visit the Overview page.
LTSV has been running since 2003 and is very much dependent on contributors for both fleet information and photographs. If you would like to get involved, take a look at the Ways to help page.
