Welcome to all enthusiasts of the old

This website aims to provide a nostalgic overview of East Anglia's famous red and cream omnibuses, depots, outstations, routes, offices, in fact anything connected with this much loved 'Tilling' bus & coach operator.

Are you an enthusiast or perhaps a former 'Tilling era' Eastern Counties employee? If so, the webmaster would be delighted to hear from you! Any contributions to this site and its associated 'fotopic' photographic gallery would be greatly welcomed.

Please contact the webmaster if you have any ideas, photographs, stories, artefacts or anecdotes, etc which you feel may enhance this site, or visit the new Eastern Counties blog to leave your messages.

Thank you for visiting this site and please do call back again soon as new information and photographs are frequently being added.
