Praed St, Paddington, London.

Possibly the top deck of a 205.

Yes, it is

You have to hand it to BNM - he's very good at this!

Yes, he is!

It used to be the start of the last leg of my daily commute (7, 23 or 159) but BNM beat me to it  Grin

Took a 205 from Bow Church to Paddington one time. What a mistake that was! Longest time I have ever sat on a service bus.

I am so so used to "No. 205 to Bow Church" from Paddington to King's Cross.  Until recently it went though the interchange stop at the front of Marylebone and the one at Euston on its way ... Marylebone has been dropped; a difficult decision, I suspect.   I can imagine all the way from Bow Church gets painful.

Along a similar line,  should you be in Grays Inn Road do not catch the No. 46 to Paddington.  I did so ... once ...

Indeed.  Wikipedia tells us "Presently on static display awaiting repairs to be authorised" and that opens up the whole discussion about whether the NRM and other museums should be static displays or have living history pieces that go out for demonstration runs from time to time, with all the financing and safety issues behind the latter.

The NRM has recently undertaken a study of the future of its operational rail locomotive strategy.

Forgive my very short post a moment ago. Everyone on this ship sharing a connection to upload pictures of New York. My pictures (lisa’s USA family mostly) have little applicability here on a transport forum; good afternoon and evening with Tyler and his wife who has grown into a charming lady.
