Photograph Taken On Sunday, April 9, 1995


Southend Transport acquired 12 Routemasters direct from London Buses in August and September 1988. Due to competition with Thamesway in the Southend area, four more vehicles were acquired in January 1991. Former Greater Manchester Buses RM378 came from a dealer whilst Leyland engined RM1543, 1682 and 2011 came from Southampton City Transport. Numbered 411 whilst on the south coast 543 CLT was repainted by Southampton prior to arrival receiving new fleetnumber 116. It then spent just over three years in service at Southend before withdrawal and sale to a Surrey based preservationist. Of interest is that when new RM1543 was allocated to Mortlake (M) garage. It was withdrawn at Ash Grove (AG) garage in August 1984. Here it is seen attending the Cobham Bus Museum Bus Gathering at Apps Court Farm, Walton-on-Thames on April 9th 1995.View image on Flickr
