Worcester Park Running Day 2008

Event highlights


As you were

Just an RT working a suburban route up a suburban street.  A highlight? - you betcha.  RT2794, a former Sutton and Merton bus, works Streatham and Merton route 118.

No trollleybus wires

Before the RLHs were Merton's low-bridge utility Daimlers.  "D130" heads for Morden at Malden Fountain.

'ello, 'ello, 'ello

A period motor passes the two coaches on stand at North Cheam Queen Victoria.  The coach services by former local operators' vehicles (or should that be local operators' former vehicles) were something of an experiment, but all operated full to capacity.

How many highlights am I allowed?  Being able (nearly) to recreate Andrew Hicks' rare photo was one; here RT3491 makes its way up Malden Road.

RTL139 takes a rest from the 156 at the North Cheam stand.  I wonder which way round the route it will depart for Sutton Garage?
