Default Countdown overhaul

Siemens have been awarded a contract to overhaul London Buses'

system, replacing the current AVL beacon-based technology with

based around GPS; there will be enhanced real-time information

via the internet and mobile phones too. Funny, because this is what

were talking about in another thread.

Yey as long as they add the 337 to the list of buses which have some
form of display at the bus stops. Theres that daft countdown display
on the Westbound part of Upper Richmond Road by Putney station: During
the day 2 buses use that stop
1. The 37 which terminates there and doesn't appear on Countdown
2. The 337 which doesn't appear on countdown
