The Roll of Honour
The following forty-five members of the RT family took part in
the event, some in London, some at Brooklands and some at both -
pretty impressive considering all are at least 60 years old.

RT4325 (chassis only)
St Helens BDJ67
The St Helens RT takes the prize for the longest journey to
attend the event, having come from the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum
at Lathalmond, Fife.
There are ample pictures on Flickr and elsewhere of
the event, so this page just acts as a record and a chance to say
thank you to all of the
hundreds of people who made the weekend go so well.

Leyland route. Here RTL1076 and RTW75 set off from Shoreditch
