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.

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 DG36.

Seems logical though a bit boring for the crew. Got to know the
conductresses quite well. At the age of 13 I had quite a crush on one of the
younger ones.
