Hancock's coaches all had identifying names - one was even called 'Autopsy'. A coach called 'Era' is shown in illustrations, dating from 1832, and advertising a service between London and Greenwich. Era was built by Hancock for a body called the London and Greenwich Steam Carriage Company. It appears that separate companies had been set up to run omnibus routes - one of them, for instance, was the London and Paddington Steam Carriage Company. These companies, ostensibly different, all seem to have had most of the same people behind them. The London and Greenwich Steam Carriage was not a Greenwich based company but a body set up in London which wanted to run an omnibus service to Greenwich.
'Era' is not mentioned in the account of 'Enterprise' but Hancock himself said he had made 'Era' for work in Greenwich. It may be that the problems which Hancock had with David Redmund meant that the vehicle never actually ran a service. 'Era'anbH carried sixteen people sitting inside and two outside. In addition there was crew of three - the driver, an engineer and a lad. There were two engines for the engineer to manage. The 'lad' stoked the boiler with 'common gas coke ' - that is coke bought from the gas works.
