- Laurie James
Laurie James has been a resident of the Walton-on-Thames area for thirty-five years and has a keen interest in the historical aspects of the bus and coach industry.
Whilst the story of major bus operators has been generally well recorded, he is keen that a proper record should be preserved for the smaller, often family run concerns.
Laurie is a committee member of the Omnibus Society's Provincial Historical Research Group and for many years has been Local Bus Service Manager in Surrey County Council's Passenger Transport Team.
He has written or co-authored seven previous bus history books.
