The London Group of the South Devon Railway Association raised an appeal in 2004 to buy one of London's last iconic red Routemaster double deck 'buses for use by the South Devon Railway on its Vintage 'bus service and successfully purchased RM1872, one of the "Ensign 32", in December 2004.
These pages are a record of the work and experience gained from owning and operating a former London Transport Routemaster ‘bus.
Steps have been taken to establish a new company, South Devon Railway Road Services Ltd, to take over running the 'bus service directly.
Please visit the SDRRS website for full details.
We trust you find our notes of some use and that you come to the South Devon Railway for a ride or consider hiring the vehicle.
