London is famous around the world for its front engined buses with the open platform at the back, and its friendly drivers and conductors.
The film Summer Holiday stars Sir Cliff Richard sharing the big screen with an RT, the precursor to the Routemaster, itself an advanced bus of its time. Over 7,000 RT were built, making them the largest standard bus fleet in the world at the time.
The RT played a major part in the high standards set for the Routemaster when it was designed by London Transport and AEC engineers.
More recently, the Routemaster made a big screen comeback as Decker Toppington III in Disney Pixar’s Cars 2.
