|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.
