A blast from the past.

Seen at the Tudor Rose  on Wednesday 13th February 2019 RM 548 Routemaster bus on route 190  which ran from Old Coulsdon to Thornton Heath High Street from 1951 until 1990. Originally operated by RTs Routemasters taking over in 1970. It was replaced by route in 1990 by DMS on route 50 Old Coulsdon to Streatham via Thornton Heath Street then in 1998 by route 60 Old Coulsdon to Streatham via Pollards Hill as now.
