John GSpent many happy teenage days photographing at Dorking. Seemed to be haven for odd vehicles, as I recall, which made every trip interesting. From a fading memory (which is a good reason to upload comments to a site like this!) let's see how many I can remember towards the end of its days. Firstly RMC4 sat here quietly moulding for many years, before it was eventually restored again. Green Line days over, early examples of the ECW-bodied TL-class Leyland Tigers worked country routes from DS, including the 514 between Capel and Kingston. Also here was the odd open-top Atlantean AN125 (UPK 125S) converted to an open-top for summer services following a local bridge incident. Toward the end, when the fleet of Shamrock and Rambler had been absorbed, Dorking was the place to see ''strange'' liveried Leyland Tigers, many still carrying S&R, Nexp or Nexp Rapide livery. As for service vehicles, lCSW operated a Leyland fuel tanker from here: again I have a negative somewhere, and will post it when I can find it. Fri 06/07/2007, 21:02
