Red RF routes

Crew routes commencing 1960-1964

 
Conversion of the 212 to double-deck operation in 1960 released RFs to Kingston.  This and RT conversions at Uxbridge enabled the final members of the T and TD classes to be withdrawn over the next few years, culminating in the last TD-operated route, the 240A, converting to RF in 1962.
