A chance meeting

Doing a wedding in East Sussex with RML2532, one of the older passenger got chatting; it turns out he was one of the industrial design team who actually done the design work on te appearance of the Routemaster back in the 1950's.

Part of his handiwork was the design of the famous seat moquette pattern that we all know and love. He was pleased to see part of his work lives on today. I didn't get his name though.

My bus number (if any): RML2532
