    Does anyone have any linky to documents showing the withdrawal timetable for those London artics on the remaining routes?

    I currently have the 12 down for tomorrow, the 436 for the 19th, the 29 for the 26th and the 207 for 3rd December but have conflicting dates from my previous notes.

    Does anyone know whether these are dates for the last day of artics operation or the first date of double-decker operation?

    The standard day for service changes to be introduced on London Buses is Saturday - last day of old service Friday. At least thats what it used to be - maybe it's changed!

    OK, thanks. I didn't get around to checking out the 12 on Saturday so this is useful information.

    I took a bunch of photos on Saturday on the 29 and 436 while I had some spare time there, given that I missed the opportunity when the Flyer proved too much a temptation last time =). I don't find anything special about them however they have their place and do a wonderful job on certain routes so I shall be sorry to see them go.

    For some reason I have the 207 down as finishing a week earlier. Looks like Andrew Braddock isn't that accurate himself.

    He doesn't work for TfL any more :)

    It's quite possible it was that date at one point - all I can check is what the date is expected to be and how firm that date is (at the moment the date is listed as "Provisional" for the 207 so could well change, the other two are "Firm" so are less likely to change)

    The latest I am aware of is that the last day of bendibuses on route 436 is Friday 18th November, 29 will be 25th November and 207 9th December. I never read of route 207 changing a week earlier. Even the list below updated today still has the same dates.
