Just when you thought it was safe.........

Just when you thought it was safe to look at Truckfax again because there was so little chance of seeing the dreaded Routemasters, here we go again. I have no idea why nine of them forgathered on pier 24 this morning (more may be following) but here they are in all their glory.

I think Ambassatours has a dozen of these double deckers, which would normally be laid up for the winter. The last one in the line needs a new paint job, but the others were in pristine condition. All have their rear platforms boarded up, making me think that perhaps they are bound for winter storage in one of the Port Corporation's sheds.

All were RMLs, numbered as follows: 2332, 2379; 2365, 2664; 2673, 2309; 2677, 2578; 2534.

Interesting to see the juxtaposition of wide and narrow body models in the first rank.
