    After a morning (well a couple of hours) spent dismantling the rear brakes on the Range Roveur some friends stopped by to take me out for lunch. 4 of us, two not driving. Good lunch, many litres of house red. Friend and I have a debate about "just one more carafe" and we both decide to be sensible and not do it. The cafe owner had obviously been listening and arrived with another carafe - un cadeau (present) from him.
    Think I will spend the afternoon on the sofa with crap TV (and maybe another bottle!)

    That's a green RT not a red one. How can you tell in black and white? The wheel arch is the same colour as the rest of the bus. A red bus would have black wheel arches. 
    Then the garage code is RG for Reigate, a London Country garage, or London Transport Country Area depending on the date. I suspect the latter as the green looks quite dark. 
    The route is either 403 or 405 both of which went quite near Reigate. 
    This also means the clippies uniform is dark green with yellow details rather than the dark blue/white of Central Area. Just in case you want to imagine her in more detail. 
    I'd love an original Country Area uniform, they were so classy. I'd happily wear it everywhere. Maybe not the skirt though. An old friend had a country area drivers great coat, a big full length one and I coveted it greatly. I have a mid 60s central area conductors jacket and it is a nice, proper quality thing unlike any uniforms today but the green really did it for me. 
    Have I said too much?
