The REVIEW

Picture of recent Crosville Review covers
All members of the Crosville Enthusiasts Club receive a monthly magazine, the REVIEW. This covers operations within the the former Crosville Motor Services operating area and depots, and beyond. Each month news reports cover changes to the fleets and services of operators in this area. Obviously the large fleets that have replaced Crosville are covered (Arriva Cymru, Arriva North West and First PMT), as well as the larger independants that have grown up in the area since Crosville's demise, see below for some examples. To accompany the news reports there are articles, penned by the membership, often about their experiences and memories of Crosville or associated subjects. Each month also contains a review of what was happening 25 years ago in 'Reviews Revisited'

This site contains an example REVIEW to download as a Microsoft Word file, and the following example articles (all are PDF files):
    The Memories of a Founder Member - By Chris Lodington
    Classic Crosville - By Chris Lodington
    On the Ole' Southern Frontier - By Tony Moyes
    Wrexham Colliery Services - By Tony Moyes
    Llandudno Town Depot High Summer 1965 - By Barry Ware
