I don’t get quite as excited as some people do over buses and trains. I view them as a means to get too and from places. That said I have always had a soft spot rot the Routemaster.
As industrial design goes it was a classic. Visually distinctive, practical and sturdy. Like most Londoners I grew up with them and I loved them.
That Livingstone got rid of them was one of the reasons I felt that he had to go. I have just seen the new designs for the 21st Century Routemaster and I’m excited by buses again. Sad I know, but there you go.
I’ll tidy up this link when I get to a proper computer.
