At the Routemaster 60 event at Finsbury Park in July 2014, the oldest vehicle on display and definitely not a Routemaster was this 100 year old B type double decker.

Some while ago the London Bus Museum acquired the chassis of LGOC NS174. This has been overhauled and work is now in progress on building a replica open top body. This will be a useful addition to the early London buses as the only other surviving NS (the LT Museum's NS1995) is in as withdrawn condition, with covered top, pneumatic tyres and driver's windscreen.

Former Metropolitan Electric Tramways 331 (LT 2168) built in 1930 by UCC, was the unique centre-entrance Feltham. It was bought by Sunderland in 1937 (becoming their 100) and thankfully lasted long enough to be preserved. During its life it has worn many liveries, but none more inappropriate than this British Steel livery.

One of the major tram systems in the capital prior to the formation of London Transport in 1933 was the Metropolitan system in North London. In 1930 they placed tram 331 in service, an experimental car. Later examples would be known as Felthams although the production cars did not have a centre entrance. This car was sold to Sunderland in 1937 for further service; it ran as their 100 until 1951.

Three of the four prototype Routemasters were present at Routemaster 60 (the missing one being RMC4, the Green Line coach prototype). When RM2, SLT57, first entered service it was in green livery and was used for a short time in the Country Area. (It was the only standard RM to do be so used – later Country Area vehicles were either RMLs or Green Line coaches.) It has recently been restored to its original condition and livery as seen here.

184. SLT58
The third RM prototype was very much an odd man out, having Leyland running units, and was thus numbered RML3. With use of the RML classification for the later long Routemasters it reverted to being RM3. It was the first of the prototypes to enter preservation, passing to the London Bus Preservation Group at Cobham and it is still with their successors. It has now been restored to its original frontal appearance and once again bears the number RML3, SLT58, as seen here.

There were scheduled to be two "surprise vehicles" at the Ensignbus vintage running day. One turned out to be RM1843, 843DYE, which I understand has been repatriated from the USA (it still carries an American registration plate on the back). It has just been restored and this was probably its first public appearance. Here, watched by a photographer, it turns out of Upminster Station Approach on its way to Gravesend on the X55.

229. JJD563D
There was little of interest for SCT61 at this year’s North Weald Rally apart from the inevitable RTs and RMs. One of the latter of rather more interest than most was RML2463, JJD563D, carrying a period advert for opening of the first section of the Victoria line between Walthamstow and Highbury on 1st September 1968.

A non Southdown vehicle used on the service at the Southdown Centenary Rally was Stagecoach Midland Red South RML2565, JJD565D, which carried Stratford Blue livery. Here it loads up at the rally site. Does the advert provide us with another beer?

231. CUV287C
There are a significant number of Routemasters now in the hands of operators specialising in private hire work with vintage vehicles. Most are kept in London Livery and are distinguishable only by their legal ownership and whatever advertising they carry. RML2267 CUV287C is typical, looking much as it would have done in London service apart from the blind display which advertises its owners “Londonbus4hire.com”.

232. SMK663F
I don’t know what it has to say about the other interests of bus enthusiasts, but there were four Routemasters present at Routemaster 60 event which had been converted to mobile bars! Perhaps the most interesting was RML2663, now based in Germany and carrying registration NE.001.H. As has been done with a number of European based Routemasters, it has had the roof removed and replaced with a flat raising roof to comply with European height restrictions.

235. SMK741F
Many London Routemasters have entered second lives as publicity buses of some sort. One present at Detling was ex-LT RML2741, SMK741F, now in this "shocking pink" livery with Superdrug, the chemist chain. It did not seem to be much altered internally, but it is fitted with a tow bar, perhaps to tow a mobile generator. Perhaps it is just intended as a eye catching mobile billboard.
