RCL 2243 a big hit with passengers

RCL 2243 approachs Gynn Square with a full load of passengers picked up from the North Shore hotels
The open top Routemaster on loan to Classic Bus North West from Routemaster Buses at Crewe has become a firm favourite with members of the public on the Sea Front 12 promenade service. RCL 2243 seems to attract more passengers than any other bus on the sea front route, especially on sunny days. The normal Routemasters of CBNW are already popular with visitors to Blackpool, but RCL 2243 has the attraction of being a London bus with the added opportunity of a ride in the fresh air being thrown in for good measure.
