Sheffield Corporation Transport

This page is dedicated to PRV or Roe products initially destined for Sheffield Corporation; thus it is a compilation of vehicles found elsewhere on this website. 

Intriguingly bus services in Yorkshire, were at one time, operated by an amalgamation of committees from separate companies known as Joint Omnibus Committees.  Sheffield Corporation had three fleets operating in defined boundary areas; one owned by the Corporation and two others, one jointly owned with the British Railways’ Board (BRB), and another solely owned by the BRB.  Whilst all fleets carried the Sheffield logo and livery the vehicles' legal ownership was specified independently which can be seen in the supersized image of the AEC Swift (TWE125F) below.
