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).


I used to go to school on either OLD345 or OLD362, the latter was favourite
with us as the route was the 362.


Don't think so, sir. *Still have a 1962 ABC to hand which has no 300's.


The green ones were mainly 500's and 700's plus a few 600's and 800's.


Now my school ones were JXN33 to 41 when new!


One time, about 1973, I photographed RT "OLD001"


If that was on the registration plate then it was not a valid number.


OLD 1? 36 years is a long time to remember.
