Birmingham City Transport
This page is dedicated to PRV or Roe products initially destined for Birmingham City Transport; thus it is a compilation of products found elsewhere on this website.
As a result of a banner-page plea on this website (Feb. 2018) asking for information on the PRV-built Birmingham RT's, Peter Williamson kindly wrote in with his investigation into the subject and commented as follows:
"I have obtained the following, starting from 'Birmingham Corporation Transport 1939-1969' by Paul Collins (Ian Allan Transport Library), and then using the registration numbers to look up on Flickr and buslistsintheweb.co.uk
There were 15 AEC RT type Regent IIIs with Park Royal H29/25R bodies.
Fleet numbers 1631-45
Registration numbers GOE631-45
Chassis numbers O961189-203 (but not in fleet number sequence)
Body numbers B32226-40
They were delivered between August and October 1947, and worked into the 1960s. The bodies were not to the standard RT design but (apart from the cabs) were assembled using standard RT jigs. Photos in the book (mentioned above) and on Flickr show them on routes 1 & 44."
Here is GOE 631 in Google image search.
(I would be grateful if anyone has any images of these RT types that I could display on this site; acknowledged of course. Ed.)
