Midland Red was the largest bus operator outside London and was unusual in that it designed, built, and operated most of its own vehicles. Unlike LT through its AEC/Park Royal connection and Bristol, Midland Red did not sell its vehicles to other operators. This left the company in a unique position and as a result, gained many followers. This book covers the company's history into NBC days, from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s.

Midland Red in Retrospect covers the period during the 1960s when the Midland Red bus company dominated the Midlands, operating the lions share of the bus services and also operated express coach services from the Midlands to London and other locations. Like London Transport, Midland Red had a very distinctive image and had its own fleet of vehicles designed exclusively for its operations. This volume is written by someone who worked for the company during this period and reflects the color and atmosphere of this much loved and well remembered bus operator. Sadly the author passed away in September 2020, before the book was published and this volume of Midland Red bus pictures is a tribute to him.
