At the end of the war, our fleet was very worn due to the heavy loads carried and the reduced level of renewal. Rationing of fuel, food and other items continued for some years. We made a start on renewing our fleet and many of the late pre war buses had their bodies removed for scrap or sale for use as sheds. The chassis were thoroughly overhauled and new bodies were fitted by body builders at Loughborough which was then something of a centre for bus body manufacture. Many of our bus bodies over the years were built by the Brush and Willowbrook companies in that town, although these bus factories are now long also ordered many new buses and by 1950, our fleet of buses once again looked modern, helped by a bright new red and cream livery which replaced the previous red and dark maroon.
