Two months into the 405’s new contract and it has now gained its full allocation of brand new MMCs. You get the occasional DB300 diesel which is always nice but they’re more common on the school 405D workings to Purley and back. I have done this route in full before and rode on this type/operator combination before on the 202 but I’d like to see what these buses are like on faster roads. Funny how this route has gone from one of the older buses in the capital to the newest currently. Think these HTs are blinded for other routes based at South Croydon (TC) so if you see one on the 60, 412 or 466, don’t be surprised. After Purley, you get some faster stretches all the way down to the M25 junction and there’s a lot of greenery and cattle to take in which is always lovely. SK70BVP (HT25) is standing on St George’s Walk just off the town centre awaiting another journey to Redhill via Coulsdon and Merstham.View image on Flickr
