HISTORY The STL class was introduced by London General in 1932 and continued production until 1939.  STL 441 was built after the formation of London Transport.  Originally fitted with a petrol engine, it received a diesel engine in 1939.  In 1948 in the body was rebuilt, but the bus was finally withdrawn in 1952.

In 1953 she was sold to a Dutch museum, but was purchased by the London Bus Museum in 1974.  Following several years of operation by the LBM, a further full restoration was necessary, being completed in 2007.  It is now presented in the post-war 1948 rebuild form.
