Roof Advert Routemaster

The bus a 171a (Abbey Wood via Abbey Estate - Tottenham, Sundays only) is in the forecourt of Abbey Wood Garage, ex tram depot. It was a very long route for the 171a all the way from Tottenham to Abbey Wood.

The garage is now closed with houses built on the site. 

RM 1041. 41CLT This bus is fitted with a roof advertisement, for people looking out of the windows of office blocks. It can just be seen on the far side of the roof.

A closer picture of RM 1041. The roof advertisement can bee seen clearly in this picture. These buses were run on routes where there were a lot of higer building so the adds  were visible from out of window. Only a short message could be used to be seen as the buses moved past.
