Remember the entry in which I talked about some unconventional uses for retired public transport? If not, it’s at the following address: https://londonparticulars.wordpress.com/2009/02/22/are-you-lost-little-tube-train/
Read it and then nod sagely when I talk about it, that’s the ticket. Anyway, I’ve just found another use for retired buses. It turns out that in Davis, California, they’ve provided a regular service to the university since 1967. See http://daviswiki.org/Double-Decker_Buses.
The small fleet mostly consists of RTs, which should not be confused with the Routemaster. The RT has a sloping front and a radiator which is tall rather than wide. There are other differences, but this was supposed to be a quick entry dashed off in a couple of minutes. Plus I think I’ve already written most of this.
