"Introduced in early 1939. the RT was the culmination of a design process begun as early as 1910. This was to be the standard bus for London. mass-produced in numbers never equaled before or since. it was a triumph of engineering and styling. After the war it replaced the antiquated fleet of pre-war and wartime utility vehicles. from 1950 to 1952 it was used to sweep away the fleet of London Trams. Later - with the help of the Routemaster - it replaced the trolley buses. The RT served London for 40 years; and the RTS are still running today - and are shown still working around the world. Featuring the country's top experts and authors; and illustrated with unique archive footage; this video tells the fascinating story of the RT - London's Classic Bus."
