Paul A. Bateson

Life long bus historian with a huge bus memorabilia collection. Worked for 41 years in the bus industry. I edit the quarterly magazine British Buses Abroad (published by Buses Worldwide), work for Double Deck Tours in Niagara Falls, Ontario and cruise for buses with Princess Cruise Lines.

My specialty is finding, recording the details and photographing British-built buses around the globe.

Other facts about me:

I have uploaded pictures from 2 countries (Canada and UK - England).

These are my 8 pictures:
