AW Garage

Several drivers and conductors rest on the wall at the front of the garage on a June day in 1970. Of note is the gibson ticket machine case standing on the ground. AW  closed in 1981 and was moved to the new PD garage in Plumsted. It was subsequently demolished and replaced with housing.

Inspectors in Abbey Wood canteen. With routes operated by three different garages terminating at the garage, various crews tended to to sit in different areas of the canteen. No doubt the inspectors sat near the window to keep an eye on bus movement whilst on their break.
