I always thought of them as the Routemaster of the tube world!

I'd have said the RT. RMs were more the contemporaries of the 59
and 62 stock.

Mind you, the RT was still in production in 1954 (paradoxically,
some of these had OLD nnn numberplates).

The main reason to link the RMs with 1959/62 TS was that they all had
aluminium bodies. The RTs and 1938TS were all-steel (something of a
novelty in 1930s buses).
