The 159 goes out with a bang…

Or should that be a flash? Well there was a lot of flashing going on today from the massed ranks of bus-spotters gathered at the junction of Kennington Road and Westminster Bridge Road, outside Lambeth North station today. It’s the penultimate day of the 159 Routemaster, and the penultimate day of the Routemaster- period! London Transport seem to want to make it a special kinda passing by putting on some other old buses. Heck, I saw one earlier that looked like it was the forerunner of the Routemaster. And there was an old green RM, like the one on the left.

So I expect that tomorrow, there will be even more hopeless nostalgists out to mourn the passing of that great London insitution. And take even more photos. This lot will doubtless be there. And this lot. And who knows, I may join them for a photo or two…
