I learnt that today was to be the last day of London’s iconic Routemaster double deckers. London’s hop on, hop off buses. It’s only a bus, but I can see it’s a shame to see them go as they have so much character. Last year when there was a tube strike, I managed to hop on the back of one and I remember admiring it’s features, like the way the driver sits afore everyone else and the spiral staircase.
I suppose everything comes to an end at some stage and we must move on. In another 50 years we’ll bee looking at the our, at present modern buses end their service and loving their antique CCTV cameras and easy-step hydraulics.
