This months tube strike saw the need to put lots of extras out on to London's bus network to enhance the service in areas where the tube would not be working. Special dispensation was given to put vintage vehicles into service as well for the duration of the strikes to help cope with the demand. Ensign was the main contractor for this and were looking after extras on the 25/29/38/91 and 257 routes. The 25/29 and 38 were the routes that got the heritage buses, with the 38 getting RM/RML and RT, the 25 RT/Metrobus/FleetlinePD3 and the 29s RM and RT.
The weather was foul for most of both days, so we are grateful for the photographers who recorded the day and kindly shared their images with us.
As we are still a little busy out with emergency rail due to flooding and landslips I will endeavour to try and get some more restoration update pictures next week.
