Details: This picture shows some new things and some old things. Vauxhall Bus Station has been open a while now but stills look ultra-modern, while the Plaxton President bus (could be a PDL or a PVL) has recently been fitted with an internal TV on the upper deck. (These things are great on long journeys. You can watch the same adverts and ''entertainment-info-mercials'' over and over again while having your outside view obstructed. To be fair, this installation looks fairly unobtrusive).
The old item is route number suffixes. The 77A was the last in a very long line of suffixed routes and finally got changed to a plain (''un-confusing'') 87 in June. Does it now go via Becontree Heath though?!
Oh, I almost forgot the SV. Still fairly new, Mercedes-Benz 5801M is presumably based somewhere in inner or South London. Pic taken on 31st May 2006.
