The company Commonwealth Engineering (Comeng) began as Smith & Waddington in 1921 Australia â?? a small firm building custom bodies for motorcars. A larger factory enabled the company to begin building railway rolling stock, but the advent of war brought new changes. The Australian government took over control, and the plant became a manufacturer of wartime products. The company was so successful that the government took up the controlling shares in 1946 and the name changed to Commonwealth Engineering. Post war brought huge contracts for double deck buses and passenger railway vehicles. By 1955, an agreement was signed with the Budd Company of Philadelphia giving Comeng a license to build stainless steel passenger trains in Australia. It was a turning point in the company's fortunes. Author John Dunn joined the company in 1956. When the company closed, its owners ordered the destruction of all the archives and records. Dunn managed to salvage some materials. Since the activities of Comeng represented a significant part of the industrial and manufacturing history of Australia, Dunn's intention has been to document its 70-year story. This monumental work, with numerous interviews and photographs, will be published in three volumes over the next three years.

Take a tour through the Big Smoke via road, rail and river, and discover... • What the official difference is between a ‘taxi’ and a ‘cab’. • Why the iconic Routemaster was withdrawn from regular service in 2005. • How much of the Underground is actually below ground. • Why London’s first tramway was threatened with closure in the same year it opened. • Which was the first ferry to operate passenger trips across the Thames. Every year London opens its doors to a staggering 16 million people, all wanting to get to their destination of choice in the shortest time possible. Yet for many of us, the beauty and clockwork of the transport we use, be it taxi, Tube, bus, bike or boat, is a part of the London experience we tend to forget. From the iconic red buses to the abandoned Tube stations and the engineering achievements to the cultural highlights, this book celebrates everything you’ve ever wanted to know about getting around in London, and much, much more.

Ian Fleming's James Bond character has entertained motion picture audiences for nearly sixty years, and the filmmakers have come a long way since they spent $1 million producing the very first James Bond movie, Dr. No, in 1962. The 2015 Bond title, Spectre, cost $250 million and grossed $881 million worldwide—and 2020's No Time to Die is certain to become another global blockbuster. The James Bond Movie Encyclopediais the completely up-to-date edition of author Steven Jay Rubin's seminal work on the James Bond film series. It covers the entire series through No Time to Die. Packed with behind-the-scenes information based on interviews with the cast and filmmakers, fascinating facts, trivia, bloopers, classic quotes, character bios, and cast and filmmaker bios, it showcases the type of exhaustive research that has been a hallmark of Rubin's work in film history. It also features hundreds of rare and unusual still photographs of the participants both in front of and behind the camera.

At the formation of the new Republic of Ireland, the construction of new infrastructures was seen as an essential element in the building of the new nation, just as the adoption of international style modernism in architecture was perceived as a way to escape the colonial past. Accordingly, infrastructure became the physical manifestation, the concrete identity of these objectives and architecture formed an integral part of this narrative. Moving between scales and from artefact to context, Infrastructure and the Architectures of Modernity in Ireland 1916-2016 provides critical insights and narratives on what is a complex and hitherto overlooked landscape, one which is often as much international as it is Irish. In doing so, it explores the interaction between the universalising and globalising tendencies of modernisation on one hand and the textures of local architectures on the other. The book shows how the nature of technology and infrastructure is inherently cosmopolitan. Beginning with the building of the heroic Shannon hydro-electric facility at Ardnacrusha by the German firm of Siemens-Schuckert in the first decade of independence, Ireland became a point of varying types of intersection between imported international expertise and local need. Meanwhile, at the other end of the century, by the year 2000, Ireland had become one of the most globalized countries in the world, site of the European headquarters of multinationals such as Google and Microsoft. Climatically and economically expedient to the storing and harvesting of data, Ireland has subsequently become a repository of digital information farmed in large, single-storey sheds absorbed into anonymous suburbs. In 2013, it became the preferred site for Intel to design and develop its new microprocessor chip: the Galileo. The story of the decades in between, of shifts made manifest in architecture and infrastructure from the policies of economic protectionism, to the opening up of the country to direct foreign investment and the embracing of the EU, is one of the influx of technologies and cultural references into a small country on the edges of Europe as Ireland became both a launch-pad and testing ground for a series of aspects of designed modernity.

Public transport has now been around for over 150 years in one shape or another and this book takes a nostalgic look at the heritage and story of Buses and Trams. Tramways when operated in the 19th century and beyond formed a large part of the community in towns and cities, helping to get people around in style using steam and electric technology. Trams over time were however up against the might of the internal combustion engine, in the shape of the emerging petrol and diesel powered buses. These newfangled vehicles didn’t require rails or overhead cables and could go just about anywhere. There was also of course the electric trolleybus that sat somewhere between a bus and tram. The tram has thankfully made comebacks over the years and buses have evolved with the times, so join us looking through the early years to more recent times. This book is full of facts, information about the manufacturers, insight about the classic buses and includes some superb archive pictures.
The tie-up with British Leyland which was strong in both truck and bus segments helped Ashok Leyland deliver similar focus in India too. In fact, British Leyland was always famous for its buses, especially the iconic double decker buses ...

Product strategy is the key driver of business strategy and corporate success. This book brings out several important aspects of product strategy, drawing upon examples from the Indian automobile industry, which is verily the bellwether of the Indian economy. The automobile industry is not only a strategic industry economically but also an instructive industry intellectually. The industry is the cradle of modern management and is a synthesis of various functional strategies. The growth of the automobile industry or, for that matter, any consumer-facing industry lies in its ability to maintain a continuous pipeline of new and innovative products, substantive in functionality and stylistic in appearance. The automobile industry provides the perfect backdrop for discussing products as the core of the corporate business strategy. The global automobile industry, including the Indian automobile industry, is at an inflection point with portends of an unprecedented transformation. The drivers of this transformation are already seen in terms of connected vehicles, autonomous mobility, electric vehicles and digital technologies. The book, through its eighty chapters, demonstrates the synergistic interplay between technology and business, strategy and execution, innovation and inventiveness, enterprise and regulation, indigenization and globalization, structure and process, resourcing and spend, and leadership and management. This interplay would determine India’s ability to become a major player in this transformation. This book will be of interest to industry professionals, policy makers, the academic community and the general public.

In Monsoon Postcards, journalist David H. Mould, notebook in hand, traverses the Indian Ocean—from Madagascar through India and Bangladesh to Indonesia. It’s an unpredictable journey on battered buses, bush taxis, auto-rickshaws, and crowded ferries. Mould travels from the traffic snarls of Delhi, Dhaka, and Jakarta to the rice paddies and ancestral tombs of Madagascar’s Central Highlands; from the ancient kingdom of Hyderabad to India’s so-called chicken neck—the ethnically diverse and underdeveloped northeast; and from the textile factories and rivers of Bangladesh to the beaches of Bali and the province of Aceh—ground zero for the 2004 tsunami. Along the way, in markets, shops, roadside cafes, and classrooms, he meets journalists, professors, students, aid workers, cab drivers, and other everyday residents to learn how they view their past and future. Much like its predecessor, Mould’s Postcards from Stanland, Monsoon Postcards offers witty and insightful glimpses into countries linked by history, trade, migration, religion, and a colonial legacy. It explores how they confront the challenges of climate change, urban growth, economic development, land, water and natural resources, and national and ethnic identity.

This book critically explores the relationship between mobility patterns, transport provision and urban development in East African cities. Bringing together contributions on the futures of mobility in urban East Africa, the chapters examine transport provision, mobility patterns, location-specific modes of transport and transformative factors for transport and mobility in the rapidly urbanising region. The book outlines different mobility needs to be addressed in transport planning to serve and shape the respective cities and examines the decision-making process in transport planning and the level of accountability to the public. The contributors show the dialectic between innovation in transport/mobility and urban development under rapid urbanisation and discusses how to practically integrate mobility and transport provision into urban development. This book will be of interest to scholars in urban planning, transport planning, transport geography, social sciences and African studies.

The Triumph Stag was a two-door, four-seat, luxury touring car, designed to be Triumph's flagship model for the 1970s. Styled by prolific designer Giovanni Michelotti, and engineered by Harry Webster and Spen King, the Stag had no direct competitors throughout its production life and was the blueprint for the many four-seat convertibles on the market today. It was in production from 1970 through to 1977, but suffered from a lack of development and gained a reputation for engine problems caused by poor cooling. Triumph Stag - An Enthusiast's Guide explores the history, design and development of the car, taking a special look at the Stag's unique Triumph V8 engine - and how Stag owners today have largely solved the cooling problems. It also covers owners' experiences, specialist modifications and improvements, and the car clubs that help the Stag remain one of the most popular classic cars in the UK. Superbly illustrated with 121 colour photographs.
