Eastern Coach Works, known as ECW, was based in Lowestoft in Suffolk. The history of ECW goes back over a decade, though in this book we pay tribute to buses and coaches bodied during the sixties, seventies and eighties. Originally formed by United Automobile Services, the Lowestoft operation was passed on to the Eastern Counties Omnibus Company in 1931. By 1969 ECW was jointly owned by The National Bus Company and British Leyland, with the latter taking full control in 1982. ECW bodies were most common on chassis built by Bristol Commercial Vehicles, of which The National Bus Company was certainly their biggest customer, and the stylish bodies graced the likes of the Bristol Lodekka, LH, RE and VR, of which the latter was a common sight still in service across England in to the twenty-first century, some twenty-five years after the factory closed. ECW was closed in 1987. In this evocative and lavishly illustrated tribute, Peter Horex offers a wonderfully nostalgic view of an iconic British company.
