Topless Routemaster

Former Green Line coach Routemaster RCL 2243 in use on the Seafront 12 service near South Pier
Former London Transport Green Line coach RCL 2243 is seen passing the Lucky Star amusement arcade near South Pier on the Seafront 12 on Saturday. This Routemaster is currently on hire to Classic Bus North West from Routemaster Buses at Crewe, it was formerly a convertible open-top vehicle, but is now used in purely open-top form. RCL 2243 was previously owned by London Coaches and used on sightseeing operations in London before coming north. Due to some buses being away on wedding contracts (see photo of RML 2391), preserved Blackpool PD3 No 529 made a rare appearance on the Seafront 12 service on 1st September.
