- Walter Burt
15th August 2014
Walter Alexander first began running a motor bus service from Falkirk to Grangemouth in 1913 and services have continued in the area ever since, under the auspices of Scottish Motor Traction, Walter Alexander & Co., and latterly Midland Scottish, later privatised and now under the auspices of the First Group. Midland Scottish was the largest bus operator in the districts of Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk and was responsible for services in and around the towns of Stirling, Falkirk, Linlithgow, Grangemouth, Bo’ness and Oban.
In this book, bus driver and local historian Walter Burt uses a collection of period and contemporary images to give the reader a nostalgic look back at the history of Midland Scottish and its vehicles from the first omnibuses operated by Walter Alexander to the double-deckers of First Group today.
