Buses & Beer

April 22, 2014

What better place to end a nice day of RT chasing (RT 75 event). The Fire station in Waterloo Road has a few seats outside and if there is a gap in the traffic (pedestrians and cars!) one can easily catch routes 1, 4, 26, 139, 168, 171, 172, 176, 188 here and with a bit of luck also a “private hire” red bus… Have I missed a route? I must have been inside to get more beer…

RT 75

April 22, 2014

Some images from the recent RT 75 event on route 22. Various RTs ran in service between Piccadilly Circus and Homerton (plus a small exhibition of them at Ash Grove garage). The next day there was a nice display of RTs at Brooklands.

Old & New

April 22, 2014

The heritage route 9(H) will cease to run later this summer. Here are some photos of the Routemasters on route 9H and some photos of the “new” Routemasters on routes 9 and 24. We start with the 9(H) terminus at Warwick Gardens (there is even a Green Line route passing through here) and then move to Hampstead Heath terminus (I have not been there since the 139 went OPO!). Also captured on chip is broken down Sightseeing RML2729 in Victoria Street.

“Cobham” Day

April 22, 2014

The London Bus Museum has held an open day in April for as long as I can remember. The old museum was in Cobham but was replaced by new Cobham Hall at Brooklands in 2011. Here are some images taken during the last event:

I did take the 109 into London (well Brixton tube station really) from West Croydon but the mid-day traffic was terrible and we got thrown out at Telford Avenue garage because of the delay
