[upper left]LT sold RM1 in 1973 to the Lockheed Brakes company who used it as a research vehicle.  RM 1 was returned to LT ownership in mid 1981, and, having spent many months down in the "Chiswick Dip", it is seen here by the Experimental Shop in Sept 1980.
[centre left]Rear view taken at the same time.  The Routemaster in front of RM1 is experimental RM116, and just visible is Metro-Scania MS2.
[centre right]The LT Museum received RM1 into its collection for safekeeping and restoration by apprentices at Aldenham Works.  RM1 seen in 2003 at the Walthamstow Pump House Museum.
[upper right]Withdrawn from driver training duties in 1972, RM2 was used as the testbed for the Silver Jubilee livery and the "Shillibeer" 150th Anniversary livery worn by twelve RMs in 1979.

[upper left]RM2 was repainted in almost original livery (it was green at the very beginning) and is seen at Golders Green on the 25th anniversary road-run, Feb 8th 1981.
[centre left]Right up to date, Arriva RM6 in Golden Jubilee livery alongside RT4712 at the Southern AEC Rally in Sept 2003.
[centre right]A Routemaster missing its upper deck is a strange sight indeed.  Former RM66 was very professionally converted to a recovery vehicle, recalling the days when LT and other bus undertakings rebuilt retired buses into special purpose service vehicles.  It is seen at North Weald in June 1989, looking very nice in green & cream livery (repainted later into red & cream).  The bonnet number is 66RM.
[upper right]Near side rear view of '66RM' showing the very high standard of conversion.
