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


The old railway bridge at Mill Hill Broadway, featuring crew-operated RF367 on route 251 to Burnt Oak in the early 1960s, before the M1 extension and the modernisation of the railway.  Class 27 D5380 completes the picture.

Central Area single-deck operations

This 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.  There is also a brief history of the RF class, some local history and some background notes on LT operations.
For events, please refer to LondonBusMuseum.com.
