Where we've been

Self Preservation Society

Hackney Marshes
Running Day


This event celebrated 35 years since the withdrawal of conductor-operated single-deckers by London Transport, and our RF433 was one of the vehicles in service on Route 236 on that very last day in April 1971.

Although an excellent event, we felt it a little sad that there was such a choice of interesting vehicles to ride on that most visitors to the event didn't appreciate the significance of the day.
