The BUS-STOP is an outsider's view of London Transport buses, mainly in the 1930-1980 era.
Whats at the bus stop:
Along the way I have put together some more Dart SLF pages. Amber Coaches is up, and one or three others are almost ready, once I do the required drawings. Now its time for something relaxing, like reading Laurie Akehurst's Country Buses Volume 2.
9th January 2015 I am getting stuck into the 2014 updates, of which there are quite a few as the Dart SLFs continue their dispersal to the periphery or the scrap man. So don't expect to see much happening until the big upload, probably at the end of February.
15 December 2014. Bromley Running Day on the 7th was excellent. A report is going up (you may have to wait a while for it to get finished!.
I enjoyed the Ensignbus Running Day on 6th December, and am putting up a report (in bits, as usual).

I do not attempt to keep the histories up-to-date. If you want the latest information, there are plenty of special interest groups on the net. For comprehensive monthly updates, subscribe to LOTS to get "The London Bus".

Pages are designed for use on the Firefox browser, on 800*600 resolution. Other resolutions may give odd results. If a display ratio is not 4:3 the photos and drawings may be distorted. Using other browsers may also give odd results at times, especially if they do not follow the rules, like Microsoft's Explorer, which does its own thing. I am trying to amend pages so that they show properly on 4:3 ratio pages other than 800*600, but this may take some time, and you may need a good pair of reading glasses.
