Scott, Stirling and Co

From Graces Guide

Scott-Stirling produced an early bus for the London Power Omnibus Company

Scott Stirling had registered office in Hamilton but also operated in London. They ran their own wagonettes with Daimler engines as buses.

1903 They built three 14-seater buses for the North Eastern Railway.

1907 The London Power Omnibus fleet otherwise known as Pioneer ran 62 of this model.

The buses made a loss of 3p per mile so Pioneer went bankrupt and disappeared.

The availabilty of all the old secondhand buses made the new market nervous.

1907 Company put into liquidation by its creditors[1]
