2019 was a year of anniversaries, 40 years since the end of both AEC RF and AEC RT operation in London, as well as the 80th anniversary of the entry into service of AEC Regent III Prototype RT1.
To commemorate these anniversaries, on Saturday 30th March 2019, the London Bus Museum held an event split between Stagecoach London’s Barking Garage (The home of the last RTs in revenue service), and Go Ahead London’s River Road Garage. The event also included a free bus service between the two venues and also a cavalcade of vehicles to mark the end of the event.
The images contained in the gallery below depict those vehicles both on display at the venues, and also the vehicles used to operate the free bus services.
