"Still going strong" .. on a visit to Brooklands last year .. a "190" RT. This took us to school from Coulsdon South each morning. However from the second year onwards our group had to run down Marlpit Lane each afternoon to catch the 4.12 train.
The bus left the Tudor Rose at one minute to four and the next one missed the train by a couple of minutes - meaning a half hour wait for the next train (crucial if one had a paper round to do!).
