The BUS-STOP is an outsider's view of London Transport buses, mainly in the 1930-1980 era.
Whats at the bus stop:
3rd August 2012.
I have been fleshing out the histories of the standard non-roofbox STLs.
26th July 2012.
29th June 2012. Partial histories of RT4100-4199 have been added
Also a page on Ensignbus' Dart SLFs.
5th June 2012. I have started on a report on the Hertford Route Recreation and Running Days. As usual, more as I write it.
17th May 2012. The Sevenoaks report is going up. As usual, more as I write it.
Another year (1958) of the RTL histories has been added too.
18th April 2012.
I have started to put up a report about the East Grinstead Running Day. More will follow over the next week or so.11th April 2012. Also by way of a change from Dart SLFs I have spent a couple of weeks doing a suite of pages on the Optare Excels, that were used by Metrobus, Capital Logistics, Tellings Golden Miller, Travel London, Travel London (again), Limebourne, Connex, Thorpes, London United, Harris Bus, East Thames Buses, Town & Country, Tillingbourne, and Safeguard.
Most BUS-STOP pages contain:
I do not attempt to keep the histories up-to-date. If you want the latest information, there are plenty of special interest groups on the net. For comprehensive monthly updates, subscribe to LOTS to get "The London Bus".
The plan drawings by Ian Smith are NOT scale drawings from originals,
but based on a few known dimensions and (usually) a variety of photographs.
In places inferences have been drawn where the photographic evidence is poor.
Pages are designed for use on the Firefox browser, on 800*600 resolution. Other resolutions may give odd results. If a display ratio is not 4:3 the photos and drawings may be distorted. Using other browsers may also give odd results at times, especially if they do not follow the rules, like Microsoft's Explorer, which does its own thing. I am trying to amend pages so that they show properly on 4:3 ratio pages other than 800*600, but this may take some time, and you may need a good pair of reading glasses.
