Converted to motor bus operation from 6/7/1952 and allocated the code ''AW''. Closed on 30/10/1981 and replaced by the new Plumstead (PD) from the following day.

RayCompact, smaller version of Garston with the entry road on l/h and exit on r/h of the office block on 165 Abbey Wood Road (01 854 7277). The docking area was in the main garage similar to NX. Staff buses ran from here to Chiswick including T, GS and RTL. I remember a ride home on RTL 1232 from a visit to Chiswick which took minimal time and would have involved speeds well over 40mph (no speed cameras then)Fri 01/06/2007, 14:38
