I was astonished to see the article by Geoff Courtney in issue 235 about the photograph of the RT reproduced from my book London’s Classic Buses in Black and White.
I enjoyed compiling the book some 17 years ago, never dreaming I would see its prominence in a leading railway journal so many years on.
My enthusiastic interest began in railways at Southall in the early postwar 1940s, and being cut short by a station official’s ticking-off for loitering (spotting locos) on his platform, I turned tail to nearby South Road to collect bus numbers on routes 83, 105 and 120
(G, LT and STL bus types) instead.
The rest is history.
