Harpers Fleet List


Harpers of Heath Hayes.

These are the fleet and registration numbers of buses I have managed to trace . There are quite a few others missing from the list so I would appreciate any assistance in adding to the list! I would also maybe like to add make and maybe body manufacturer, again if anyone has this information (I will give you a mention, same goes for pictures if you have them) You can contact me via via the usual.
