Routemaster RM 857
Built in July 1961, it was allocated to Stamford Hill garage, and replaced trolleybuses on routes 67 and 243 and night bus N83. As well as stints at other garages, it was also employed as a training vehicle. Withdrawn from service in December 1984, it has since been used as a mobile home and as transport for Vespa motor scooters and is now exhibited at bus shows.
This classic bus is forever an icon of London.
