 RML 2613 - NML613E

A Brief History

This bus was in continuous service in London from 1967 to 2004 working from various garages and ending up on route 12 from Camberwell Garage for London Central Buses. Along with many other Routemasters that were taken out of service at that time it was offered for auction by Ensign Buses and bought by one of the members of what would later become the "RML 2613 Group". He, along with four others, formed the group in August 2009 with the intention of restoring the bus from it's "out of service" condition to how it would have looked in the late 1970's. This was completed in June 2012 and the bus has since been a regualr attendee at the Cobham, North Weald and Duxford Bus Rallies, as well as doing a few outings for friends and families of the owners. All of the mechanical and body work that has been carried out on the bus has been done by qualified mechanics and fitters that worked for London Transport at the time the buses were in service. This bus is ready for rallying or with a Class 6 MOT would make a great service bus.
