have been doing some more research about british buses in New Zealand, and found out that RM 1660 that i mentioned before is still running on a three hour tour duty from Queenstown to Arrowtown and from the recent photos of the bus in excellent condition.the company that runs it is based in Queenstown , called connectabus and their website is worth looking at.the route that the bus takes is quite hilly, so its a credit to the longevity of the Routemaster to be still on active duty like this.

As aLondon Transport driver badge Number N91347 I drove RT's and RM's in the 1960's from Palmers Green Garage and I love them. My home has pictures and models everywhere. At a recent bus show at duxford I saw a completely refurbished RT in Palmers green AD signage routed 102 which was my old route. I was sorely tempted to get in the drivers seat, but resisted.

just a footnote, in New Zealand we had the pleasure of riding on a genuine Routemaster bus in Queenstown ( south island ). the bus is RM 1660 and it may still have original AEC engine as the journey between Queenstown to Arrowtown on sightseeing duties is done at a very slow rate e.g 20 MPH or so.as far as i know it is still operating but may have been withdrawn since i was last in NZ in 2004.also in Auckland (north island) there is another Routemaster RM 1670 that has a Leyland engine,but im not sure if its still on the road.it was doing hire work.Cheers Tim.

Hello bus lovers. Growing up in Finchley, North London, i had many a ride on RT buses and the new Routemaster, and have been an addict ever since. in Sydney there is a fully restored RM and RT which go on runs now and then from the bus museum and i have been lucky to have been on both.your site is very interesting! Cheers, Tim.

Oh what a treat to find your website ! I was a driver at Riverside, Hammersmith from 1972 to 81. Had a break to do driving instruction then went back on the buses. Riverside had closed so I was based at Stamford Brook, Chiswick. Bought our first house in the 70`s with LT`s help. They were having trouble getting staff in W.London because of the property prices so they acted as guarantor for the amount over our mortgage limit. Drove mostly on 74b, but also on 9,11,72,266.

I used to spend many happy hours at St. Albans Bus Garage in the 1950,s with my Ian Allan Spotters Book. It was great to view your St Albans Running Day photos particularly the St. Peters St. views. Memories of the Red 84 (Walthamstow on Sundays), the resident STL "tree lopper" and Luton-Dorking Green Lines (712/14)came back to me. Great shame the garage went! Great Website !!

Ex London Transport staff,(On the tube-Station supervisor 41 years) I have fond memoreys of picking up yje night bus at Bow bus garage in the late 60s. Then I use to get the 177, 180 from Abbey wood but the night bus never went to Abbey wood bus garage in the 70s it only went as far as Woolwich. All gone know all that is left are houses.

I worked as a bus driver at Abbey Wood garage on routes 177,180 and 161a and my conductor was John Murrell and was a most enjoyable part of my life and would like to hear from anyone who knew me.

What a lovely website - so great to see these beautiful buses. I was actually booking my Theory Test when I stumbled upon this site, and I had to look because as I child I lived round the corner from ABBEY WOOD Bus Station and was fascinated by the buses going about there important business! This was in the mid-late 1970's. It is such a shame that that beautiful building no longer stands and has been replaced by modern houses. The buses were a great part of 'The Village' and everything seemed much duller after they left. Keep up the great work and I will def come and visit again! xxx
