I've dipped in and out of this site for some while now and every time I end up spending more time than should! There's always something fascinating. My only criticism (constructive!) is the use of the yellow on white captions which I find very difficult to make out. Whether it's me getting older I'll leave you to work out!

Hi Mike........Loved browsing your pages, brings back lots of memories. On your Southern RT page I am fairly sure your "early shot RT972 " 408 to Guildford is standing awaiting a crew change outside Leatherhead Garage and not Guildford Garage as noted. Keep up the the good work and thank you again....john

Hi Mike, Just discovered your website from a referral from Aviation For All (proboards). Your many photos bought back many memories from my youth (I used to bus spot as a kid) in the Fulham area but moved onto aircraft in the early 60's.... Remember taking the 91 (I think) from North End Road to London Airport on umpteen occasions before I elevated myself to the Piccadilly Line to Hounslow West and then either the 91 or 81b (I think)... Memory ain't what it used to be!!!
Anyhow, keep up the good work Mike - this is a magical site you have produced.... All the best.

I suppose it has to happen! I am of the same vintage - early 1944 born and raised in Paddington where I had a reasonably wide range of transport to view.
Trolleybus to Sudbury, No.18 bus to Sudbury Swan (not Routemaster not RT) and, of course RTWs on routes 6 and 8 plus all the various buses along
Edgware Road. Your collection of photos is magnificent, I have had a good time going through them and you have stirred many, many memories. We might have been dogging each others footsteps judging from the places you have collected photos; from all over London and the home counties to a number of the further flung corners of England. Keep up the good work and long may your legs be nifty enough to dodge that which needs to be dodged!

You and I were both founder members of LOTS in the 60s, although you are 5-6 years older than me. I used to cycle from Colindale to The City for our meetings in St Margarets, Lothbury, behind the Bank of England where we joked about breaking into the bank vaults! While my interests have moved on, I recall those days with happiness, and sometimes browse your pages when some memory prompts me - meeting a lady from Nottingham has prompted me this time to give her a photographic recollection of the "Notty Trollys"!
Do you remember our member who had the preserved Tunnel STL? (LT Route 108) I recall going on a trip on it to a show at Nuneaton, up the M1. I think it was DLU 240 (STL 1871), but I can find no reference on the web to it. Did it not survive?

Great show of what it was .
My Grandfather Cecil Benge of Sanderstead was an employee of Tilleys Transport way back in 1920s and eventually ended up a inspector I am led to believe he worked from South Croydon Garage up un till the late 60s
In fact he was instrumental in promoting a Clippy to inspector for finding my wallet on the bus to Tilbury Docks where I was joining my ship. The Clippy from Jamaica was honest and returned the wallet which had over 800 UK Pounds in it .
Yes London Buses are still good
