Routemaster Association to commemorate 14 Years since the last Routemaster Ran in General Service.
Every year the Routemaster Association organises a road run to mark the anniversary of the last day of general Routemaster operations in London, it was on the 5th December 2005 that the Routemaster ended its long service in the Capital when the 159 route went over to one person operation.
This year to mark the anniversary members the Routemaster Association will be gathering at the Ace Café from 10am on Saturday 7th December 2019 and subject to all the roads being open they follow the 159 route from Marble Arch to Thornton Heath and back.
After all buses have returned to the Ace Café and after some social time with food available from the Ace Café the buses will be setting off around 6pm for a festive night-time tour of the Christmas Lights in London’s West End.
David Lee, the Routemaster Associations Press Officer said, “this is a lovely relaxed event with owners and their buses gathering just before Christmas for a get together and road run. The event is also a great opportunity for members of the public to photograph the buses in central London”.
