Self Preservation Society

Central London
London by Night and Christmas
Lights Tour


For many years we have organised a private event to raise money for charities at Christmas, and many preserved bus owners bring their vehicles and friends along for a trundle around London by vintage bus.

RT 1784 has for many years traditionally been a participant the convoy, although it was a touch tatty at this time, as it was the vehicle that started the whole thing back in Nineteen Eighty Something. It carries a blind for the 1950s Service J Circular Tour of London.
