RCL Routemaster driver training bus
In the mid seventies LT suffered terrible vehicle shortages due to the failure of the one man operated fleet. One response to this was the repurchase of ten year old Routemaster coaches which had passed to the London Country company. Initially these were pressed into use as driver trainers still in green livery with the London Country name painted out and the LT logo applied. Many were in a very careworn condition. This is the EFE 1/76 scale model weathered by me. Many of the longer RCLs like this one were later painted red and used in passenger service again.
