Routemaster 60

London Transport's AEC/Park Royal Routemaster was unveiled 60 years ago, making its first appearance at the Commercial Motor Show at Earls Court in September 1954, where then editor E.J. Smith and his successor Alan Townsin studied it closely to produce this critical review of a double-decker few could have imagined would still be in daily heritage service today. Their detailed appraisal appeared in the January-March 1955 issue of the then quarterly Buses Illustrated.
