Hello readers. Before I start my first fictional tender updates there are a few points I shall make. The company's name is London Buses: On The Go. I will be opening new depots at certain points in London. I will choose my routes by randomly picking bus routes from a list which is provided by myself. I will not just deliberately choose routes near my local area. So here are the first ten routes I will be taking over:
Tuesday, 21 May 2013
|LK04 HYM on service A.|
|YN61 RPU on service A.|
|LK53 EZA on service A.|
|Weird blinds! BD09 ZPS on service B.|
|LK03 NKR on service A.|
|LK03 GFZ on service A.|
|LT52 XAB on service A.|
|To round off, LK03 EZA shows up again!|

|Route E11 was on diversion due to a march to save Ealing Hospital.|
|iBus at St. Pauls. Route 56 was bunching on that day. Consequently, there was a 17 minute gap near Leyton.|
|iBus at Barbican.|
|This bus is now not allocated to any route because route 67's contract has been awarded to Arriva, therefore the Presidents have no use. This shot was taken three days after the 67's new contract began so this almost an archive.|
|Hounslow garage, with a contrast of buses. VM1 next to a centre- staircase President.|
|Return of the centre-staircases! As this shot was taken the exact same day as the one above.|
|The interior of DPS 705. Weirdly, this was on the rather dull route H22.|
|New seat moquette on DPS 705.|
|Oddservation on route 391.|
|Another oddservation on route E2. TP433 has the wrong blinds as it is heading towards Greenford Broadway.|
|A broken down not in service 190.|
|iBus in Northfields.|
|iBus at Elephant and Castle.|
|Interior on route 360.|
|WHY2 at Royal Albert Hall.|
|iBus on route 360.|
|This was in Isleworth and stopped at the Star Road stop. Interesting...|
|Refurbished Spirit of London heads along Roseberry Avenue.|
|Not in service 190.|
|KP02 PUJ completes a journey at Brentford.|
|SN51 SYF on route 267.|
|Big gap on route 297.|
|Finally, an areal shot of route 395. I was on the very high bridge to cross the A40.|

|The bus stop flag at Goat Wharf.|
|The iBus screen.|
I got off at Hounslow Bus Station thinking about where I should go next. I decided to go to Heathrow Central using the 111.
|The N9 I was on.|
I could then see a 111 at the end of Hounslow High Street ready to leave. I ran as fast as I could and...
|Yes, I made the bus. I took a shot of the iBus screen. I was on a lowheight SP although I prefer the normal SP's.|
|Hounslow Garage at 7:24 am.|
|This is ridiculous. Why put a GIVE WAY sign in front of a bus stop. This was in a residential which I personally found quite boring.|
|Another shot of the GIVE WAY bus stop.|
|Here is LK03 NLT.|
|I boarded an A10 which would be a faster way to get to Uxbridge.|
|The interior of LK58 FLW.|
The two shots below were taken while going through the vehicle tunnel. It looks like the single deck version of London Ghost tours. Except that there's not really much to see apart from the other side of a dual carriageway and other buses.
|My A10 nearly crashed into a U5 near Stockley Park.|
|YX10 BFP on route U5.|
|BK10 MEV on route 427. This left 10 minutes before my 607 although the bus I was on overtook the 427 in Southall.|
|LK03 UFU on route U4.|
|LK53 FDN on route U2.|
|LK53 FDG on route U3.|
|YX62 BYG on route 222.|
|Two buses ready to leave.|
|LK08 FMC going somewhere in London.|
|The inside of Uxbridge garage.|
|The Uxbridge Garage logo.|
|LK08 FLW on route A10.|
