Welcome to Red-RF.com - the site dedicated to London Transport's red single-deck buses

 

Advance warning - the server on which Red-RF is hosted is being demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass.  Our team of experts is working on

an electronically synthesised universe that will fit within the office.  We will be restoring normality as soon as we are sure what is normal anyway.

RT75 took place on 12/13 April 2014.  Earlier, this is Bexleyheath Garage in 1970.  A well-known RT operated from Plumstead on the 122 in the mid-70s (seen in Peter Plummer's photo at the same spot as RT2811 here).

What's new
A brief report on RT75 is here.  We enjoyed ourselves.
 
Central Area single-deck operations
The site provides details of single-deck services operated by the Central Area of London Transport, up to 1968, and in particular those operated by RFs (1952-1979) - see Red RF routes.  We are pleased to include memories and comments from crews and others that remember RFs in operation.  More detail is added periodically, and comments and additional input are welcome, please email.  There are also a brief history of the RF class, some local history and some background notes on LT operations.
 
Red-RF events
Details of events we have organised in the past, including operations to mark the 60th anniversary of red RFs, are listed here, with links to photo galleries.  Future events will be notified on this page.
 
Computer settings for this site
This site is designed for Internet Explorer to be displayed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 (or higher).  Currently there are a few issues with viewing in Safari that have stumped our extensive team of experts.
 
Pages updated since January 2013 show the date of the last change.
 
Yee-ha
