TQ3080 : London Transport Museum, Covent Garden

near to City of London, Great Britain

London Transport Museum, Covent Garden
London Transport Museum, Covent Garden
Old and new stand together in the London Transport Museum. In the background is an RT type bus, the capital's standard double deck vehicle from the late 1940s and 1950s; it was the predecessor of the better known Routemaster. The vehicle in the foreground is in fact a full-sized mock up of a bus that has been designed as the successor to the Routemaster - note that the number plate is itself rather futuristic! It is intended that these will begin to appear on London's streets from 2012.
