• Conventional front-engined doubledeckers will give way to new rear-engined
Daimler Fleetlines on two London Transport routes tomorrow (Saturday). Described by LTE as "London's doubledeckers of the future", the Park Royalbodied vehicles will be the first of almost 2000 double-deckers to be bought by LT before the end of 1974.
The routes concerned are 95 (Tooting—Cannon Street) and 220 (Tooting-Park Royal), and the switch is part of the next stage of LT's Bus Reshaping Plan, which will also see the introduction of more single-deckers in place of double-deckers on other routes. All the new buses, both singleand double-deck, will be one-man operated.
