Hi, I started at Palmers Green Garage in July 1971 which had RTs and RMs only. After a short while on spare duties I went onto the Route 102 and 298A rota until 1977 when B20 DMS arrived I hated One man operation and became an Inspector in 1982. I loved the RTs and my favourite buses were RT3258 and RT 3228 ( which is now preserved ) as these had higher ratio gearboxes as they were ex Green Line buses and were slightly faster especially on the North Circular Road.

Have found some more information about British buses in New Zealand. in Christchurch (south island)they are still rebuilding after the earthquake three years ago and doing a great job by all accounts. They have three immaculate Routemaster buses on tour work there, RM 1670, RML 2724, and a open top RM, id not known.

Hi all, Once again my better half and myself had the chance to spend a very interesting day out with John and Gill on their RF 433 at showbus this year[2013] and what fine host they turned out to be. Gill drove and we had a nice tour of Warwickshire on the way, the old lady[RF 433]was on her best behavior and apart from looking at the various buses we also had a bus ride into Stratford On Avon with a rather nice meal to finish the day off in Stony Stratford. It was a good day out with some real good people and good friends for which I must say thank you to John and Gill from Pat and myself for looking after their fleet and especially my old steed[RF 433]from my LT days, and being given the chance to ride with them once more. I hope that we one day can do it all again. Thanks for what the both of you do and the care you give for so much pleasure to so many people. Lots of regards Pat and Michael.

Hi...As an ex LT driver at New Cross and Walworth between 1975/78, I am very pleased to see one of the DMS's that I drove on route 12 and 45 that is DMS 1069. I have only just discovered this website as it was mentioned today on site SCT 61 re: your list of LT garage Codes. This is a super website, nice photos etc...very well done. I will keep watching with interest. What I wouldn't give to drive a bus regrets...the best job I ever had!!!
Just called by to check on progress with fondly remembered DL 9706. I was delighted to see that so much progress had been made and that at last there's light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so much for undertaking this daunting restoration and good luck with it.

Found your site quite by accident and then "found" RF433! My mother was a clippie at West Green Garage and, when working the 233 route, would take me to Northumberland Park (to Trainspot!) and collect me one or more return trips later. Glad that one found a home. Happy Memories...

Brought up in London, travelling on RT's daily then, the bus and underground transport are the only thing I miss.

As a very long fan of London buses its nice to see so many buses ex LT still preserved cannot beat a ride on a RT or RM much better than todays buses

Great site and I'd appreciate hearing from other enthusiasts (though steam railway engines are my first mechanical love). Even though I was six when I last travelled on one, double-deck LTs remain my favourite bus, followed by STs (routes 12 and 75) and how disappointed I was when an STL was on the 75 (!) and even more so when RTs appeared, though they are a superb bus. Until replaced by RTLs and then RTs, my journeys to and from school were on Ds (rarely an STL)on route 80A. Home for dinner on the 435 (10T10, rarely 9T9)and then back on a D.
