Our faithful stead is called ‘Beatrix’ who is a 1964 Routemaster bus, surprisingly with the door at the front. She is otherwise known by the model type ‘RMF’. She Has had a long and varied life with over 6 previous owners, and we hope she will last for another 50 years.
She was originally built for out of London Service, with Northern General, in Newcastle, Where she wore the Fleet number ‘2101’ and the Number plate ‘RCN 701’. It wasn’t till 1980 that she was brought by London Transport and gained her Routemaster number ‘RMF2771’, and was then sold on to private use in 1981.
