Vintage Routemasters Running To Handle Capacity From Tube Strike

Tube strikes are messy affairs, with all the people who usually take the line that's down — like the Piccadilly line today — having to find other ways to get around. A lot of that extra capacity ends up heading to the buses, and one route that comes under particular strain is the 29 from Lordship Lane down to Trafalgar Square.

To handle all these extra passengers, TfL has called in backup, and that backup comes in the form of beautiful vintage Routemasters. Take a look at the red and green stunners in use, and notice the Epping to Ongar Railway posters on one of them.
