In this gallery we offer a selection of photos of some of the buses in service at the Weybridge running day on 23 October.   Further contributions are welcome by e-mail.
The day kicked off with a series of feeder services.  RF600 is seen in Croydon before running the 408 to Leatherhead then the 462 to Brooklands.

Modernised Green Line RF168 heads to Kingston.  The sunshine was a real bonus in late October.

More RF variety.  Modernised RF146 has been converted to a bus and is presented in late 1960s Lincoln Green and canary yellow livery.

It was touch and go whether T792, always a popular bus, would be available to run on the day.  However here it is, sharing the Chertsey Station forecourt with RLH48.

As well as RFs in variety, there were also a range of Routemaster variants.  RM1397 represented the Leyland-engined version, seen here at Hampton Court.  Also in service were AEC RM357 and Dartmaster RM1005.

As in real life, when the lack of a works float meant that green RLHs ran in the Central Area and vice versa, RLH23 ran the 461A and is seen here in Ongar Hill, Addlestone.

RF366 completed the anti-clockwise 219/264/237 loop and is seen herre pausing at Hersham Station on the 264.
