1910 B Type Bus (Poser and 3D Studio Max) - 1.78 Mb
At the end of the 19th century, most transport in London still relied on horse power. There were various experiments to try to look for alternative forms of power, such as electricity and steam. The development of the internal combustion engine made the motor bus possible and the first motor bus service ran in 1899. Early motor buses were not very reliable and had limited success. However, by around 1910, advances in design and technology had overcome many of these problems, and enabled motor bus operators to run services. The old horse bus associations found it impossible to compete with the new horseless carriages, and many went bankrupt.
The B-type bus of 1910 was the first mass-produced bus in the world, and by 1913 around 2500 had entered service. Early motor buses had open top decks and the driver, along with the passengers, was exposed to the elements.
