HISTORY New in 1960, this bus was first in service at West Ham, but went on to serve at several different garages through the 1960s.  After overhaul in 1970 she was allocated to Clapton garage, staying there until 1977, when following another overhaul she went to Norbiton for route 65.  After a final overhaul in 1982, she went to Kingston for route 71, before returning to Norbiton when Kingston was closed in 1984.  in 1985 she was withdrawn and purchased for preservation.  She has been seen at many bus rallies since that time.
