The London Central  showing 422, is in fact on route 229. Somebody forgot to change the rear blind. This is in Station Road Sidcup on 22 February 2001. The dip under the bridge can be clearly seen where the road was lowered in 1958.
Route 229 runs between Thamesmead and Queen Mary's Hospital. The 422 is North Greenwich Station and Bexleyheath.
