COME IN NUMBER 9, YOUR TIME IS UP

Today (Saturday 26th July 2014) saw the withdrawal of the 'Heritage' route 9 in London (Trafalgar Square & Kensington), operated by Tower Transit with a small fleet of original type Routemasters.


This now just leaves 'Heritage' route 15 (Trafalgar Square & Tower Hill), as the sole fully half-cabbed service after several decades of operation.


Both routes are shortened versions longer routes the 9 (Hammersmith & Aldwych) and the 15 (Trafalgar Square & Blackwall Station), the former now operated by London United with the 'new' Routemaster, the latter by Stagecoach East London with Alexander Dennis E40H hybrids.

And from Daniel Sullivan three images from the last day of operation (Friday 25th), a line-up at Kensington before the last run, and the specially prepared blind displays affixed in to RM 1627.
