Lowestoft or bussed – 1

Allan continues to enjoy retirement with a weekend based in Lowestoft.  We start with a few views of the station.  The station walls still have a Great Eastern character about them (as does the station building), but the fine overall roof is long gone.  As for the trains – you could be almost anywhere in Europe….

The main reason for the trip (apart from spending money in Scograil on the way home) was to visit the Lowestoft Transport Museum tram and trolleybus weekend.  But there were plenty of buses to see as well, and todays post shows some London Transport vehicles.

An early RT.  I’ve always like the LT livery with the white portions….

An RTL….

And a later Green RT.  Green LT buses are special, perhaps because they were more difficult to see when I was a kid growing up in Orpington…..


A green RF…..


All the above parked together…..

And some more modern vehicles.  That Leyland has a nasty lean to it!

Next time we’ll move to the overhead powered vehicles….
