In 1955 a small number of “pre-war” RTs were repainted green and sent to Hertford to work route 327, which crossed a weak bridge at Broxbourne (these buses were slightly lighter than the standard RT). Here RT36, FXT211, has just crossed the offending bridge as it passes Broxbourne station on the 327 on 2nd March 1957. Rebuilding of the weak bridge enabled these buses to be withdrawn towards the end of 1957 and, like many of the pre-war RTs, they finished their days as trainers or staff buses.
A rare colour photo of RT62, still in green, on training duties can be found here.
