Bright sun and heavy showers marked the Amersham running day, where in addition to the planned routes, a steamy RF486 ran the 359 to Aylesbury (with thanks to conductor Geoff Hudspith, as the driver didn't have a clue where he was).  Peter Larkham's shot at Great Missenden Station carefully avoids showing the blank front blind.

Route 412 was famous in LT days for having working DS1 'garaged' on the forecourt of the Royal Oak pub in Holmbury St Mary, where three of the drivers lived.  It negotiated (as does its successor today) the sunken lanes leading up towards Leith Hill.
