Now I know you all have your Green Line 80th photos so I have to come, as usual perhaps, from a different side.
Unless you've been here (home that is) you won't have seen my framed 1962 Green Line poster - one of a series - announcing the arrival of Routemaster coaches. It's in my hall.
Well Matt Wool - our talented Marketing Manager in Berkshire - sent me this really great re-rendering of it in the context of our super Wrights double-decker Green Line coaches.
I love it because these routes were at one time close to withdrawal but the outstanding efforts of the Berkshire team and the introduction of 'Rainbow fares' we are - even now - increasing the double-decker requirement on these services.
I also love it because the Windsor Green Line 704 and 705 were my original, childhood lifeline to Central London - indeed a reason why the RC class is a particular fond memory of mine (even if not for the engineers!) - as they provided what we would call now a 'step-change' in quality on these services.
