The centenary of Merton Garage was celebrated by Go-Ahead London General, in conjunction with

the London Bus Museum, with a garage open day on Sunday 17 November.  Some historical

background is on the original event page here.


The static display covered the majority of Merton's century.  Buses from the 1920s to

1960s contrast with London General's latest, the LT class for route 11.

Go-Ahead London's headquarters, formerly the pub next to the garage, form the backdrop
to the display.  For most of the day, the area was crowded with a mix of local people. 
Garage tours and rides through the bus wash were immensely popular and raised a
very healthy sum for Merton Mencap.

to miss.
