Routmaster RML 2700
72 Seats
Our largest capacity bus in constant demand

Delivered new in September 1967 RML 2700 faithfully transported London passengers for 34 years operating from garages in Hanwell, Stamford Hill and Shepherds Bus.  During this time it received regular overhauls at London Transports famous Aldenham Works.  In 1993 it underwent another major refurbishment to enable it to continue serving London for a further 18 years, way past its original life expectancy.  This included an updated interior and a new Cummins engine to replace its original AEC unit.

 

In 2003 it was purchased for preservation by Mr.J.Arundell before passing to Alpha Bus in August 2011. 

Routmaster RM 2610
64 Seats
A fine example of a standard Routemaster

Delivered new to Aldenham in December 1964 RM 2106 operated in London for an incredible 47 years from garages in Bow, Camberwell, New Cross & Putney.  It received upgrades to its interior in 1995 and 2000 whilst in 1997 it received a new Scania engine to replace its original AEC unit.

 

In May 2003 RM 2106 started a new life in Devon, first in preservation and then with The Big Red Bus Co.  Alpha Bus purchased the bus in July 2009 and returned it to the London area where it still provides passengers with a nostalgic reminder of the best of British engineering.

AEC RF 504
39 Seats
Full of 1950's charm and character and able to go places double deckers can't reach

A 1953 example of London's popular RF single deck bus. It survived in service right up until 1979.

Our bus went on to have a varied history after leaving London.  First it moved to Gosport before spending five years in Guernsey.  In 1985 it was purchased by Shaftesbury & District PSV who refurbished it.  It saw further service in Winchester and with Classic Buses, High Wycombe.  It was purchased by dealer Mike Nash who painted it gold in 2002 to commemorate not only the queen’s golden jubilee but also that of the RF bus.

 

In 2004 it was bought for preservation by Mike Betterton, Norfolk before being acquired by Alpha Bus in 2011.  

AEC Reliance Coach
41 Seats
From the golden age of coach travel.  Ideal for longer journeys and rural locations

New in 1972 to prestigious coach company Glenton Tours of London who specified a unique central entrance.  It was used for up-market UK and European tours.

 

Pinewood Film Studios were a regular customer who used it to transport actors and film crews around their film studios and outside locations. By 1989 it was being used by a Pentecostal Church before falling into disrepair and ending up in a scrap yard.  There it sat until being rescued and restored.  

 

It lived in the North West Museum of Road Transport for 10 years before being acquired and refurbished by Alpha Bus in 2018.  

AEC Regent V
A unique Living History Experience contained within a classic double deck bus. 

Delivered new to East Kent in March 1966. It spent its service life based in Dover, Herne Bay, Ramsgate and Folkestone and ended its days with East Kent as a driver training bus.

 

The bus passed to St James’ Church, Banbury, before moving to Mac of Roydon, Essex.  In July 1988 it was purchased by Oak Hall Expeditions and in 1994 it passed to a Christian group Inroads and famously traveled from John O’Groats to Lands End in support of charity walkers.

In 1997, it was donated to Associated Bus Ministries who allocated it to work on a Church of England project celebrating the Millennium asking the question ‘2000 years since what?’

 

The task of converting it into a mobile museum depicting life in the 1940’s was carried out by a group in Bath. In the summer of 2010 it was re branded as Home Front Bus and is now available for hire by schools and event organisers.
