Snow February 2009

Metrobus 942 on route 161 at Eltham Station seen at around 8.30 on Sunday evening. The snow has already been falling for a while. The carriageway is being kept clear by the traffic.

Eltham Station bus stop seen at 07.30 on Monday morning. No buses have served the stop, nor will buses serve most stops in London on that day. It was thought to be unsafe to bring the buses out. There was a lot of silly things seen done by other drivers like driving too fast. There were some cars no doubt with lights on, but were covered with a thick layer of snow so could not be seen, their drivers not having the brains to clear it first.

Arriva gave a service for the later part of the day on route 286. Here you can see 3991 working the route to Greenwich.

On Thursday around mid day we see Metrobus 485 at Chislehurst War Memorial. There is still some snow around, but later in the day it started to rain which washed snow away from most places.
