London Buses, Coaches & Recollections  93 1970


1970 was a significant year in the history of London buses, for on 1st January , the Country Area was taken out of the control of London Transport. The Green Line network had been set up in the 1930s, with comfortable coaches and well-appointed green buses operating a vast and successful network. However, by the end of the 1960s the network was showing a considerable deficit. From that landmark moment in 1970, this book takes the story forward into the decade which included the final withdrawal of the iconic RT and RF buses. However, for the enthusiast, and particularly those who delighted in the extraordinary variety of vehicles on offer, the 1970s was a fascinating period, as the pictures included here illustrate. By the end of the decade things were improving, at least in the Central Area. The years since the 1970s have shown clearly that while London's buses were then undoubtedly 'down', they were far from 'out'.
