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

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.

In those days the same bus seemed to do the same duty every day. I went
to school on RT640 (JXC 448) which was always given the running number
