These pages describe bus routes operated by GNSR  and LNER (Northern Scottish Area). Road services were initially operated without specific  Parliamentary authority but the Great North of  Scotland Railway Order, 1906 (under the Private  Legislation (Scotland) Act, 1899) granted such  powers. These powers were taken over by the LNER,  who obtained more general powers for road motor  operation under the London & North Eastern  Railway (Road Transport) Act, 1928.  On 15 August 1929, the LNER and LMSR reached  agreement whereby the railway companies would  relinquish their passenger road services in favour of  one of the companies in the Scottish Motor Traction Co.  Ltd. group (SMT).  The transfer took effect in stages  during 1930. The dates quoted are those from whence a service  commenced or ceased, i.e. the first date when there  was no service.  This is in line with normal railway  records practice.  Route take-overs are quoted from the date the new operator took over. The fare stages are shown for each route, with the  Ordnance Survey references based on the mileage  taken from the GNSR Working Timetables.  Further  information on GNSR and LNER road motor services  can be found in Cummings Railway Motor Buses and  Bus Services in the British Isles, 1902-1933,  Volume 1.
