The final group are mainly OMO conversions to RF
(rather than to Swifts), but include the 151
, the re-introduction of a mid-day only
service to Carshalton Beeches that (not surprisingly, perhaps)
lasted only 6 months. The final 'new' RF route was a section
of the North Circular route 112, which was split due to congestion
on that road.
RF314 awaits departure
from Leatherhead garage on the 71
the day it replaced the usual BL (see the 71 page). Behind is
a first-generation London Country Atlantean, in all-over Imperial
Life livery - surely one of the most uncomfortable buses ever to be
inflicted on the travelling public and absolutely no match for the
RTs they replaced on the 408
least the later ones were a bit better.
