Passed this old bus yesterday. Looks like it should be on the streets of London

That probably came from London!

I got a close look at one of those somewhere, a parade or museum...

Very crude. One thing I noticed, no starter on the engine. It was started by the maintenance crew before it left the yard for the day. Up to the driver not to stall it!

I rode on some of those 50 years ago when visiting family in England. They were all red over there.

A guy in my neck of the woods set up a double decker like that as a party bus. It had a bar and lounge chairs with tables upstairs and lounge chairs down stairs. It was painted wild colors. Last time I saw it it was in a salvage yard. The party was over.

Reminds me of the "Hop on-Hop off" buses we see on our southern trips. Nice way to tour the city and decide what we want to see.
