Fans say farewell to routemaster bus

Bus enthusiasts will queue from early today for the chance to be on the last jump on, jump off double-decker Routemaster bus ever to run in London.
Forty lucky passengers will join dignitaries on the 159 route bus as it completes the last scheduled journey to be operated by a Routemaster.

Expected to be watched by big crowds, the 159 - operated by transport company Arriva - will travel from a stop in Oxford Street close to Marble Arch and arrive about an hour later at Brixton Garage in south London.
