It will be strange not seeing Routemasters plying their trade on future visits to London. Turns out they retire from service today. Another British icon takes its place in history. People have mixed views about the double-decker with its open rear platform. I always enjoyed the freedom of being able to hop on and off depending on the weather, traffic and company. Gone but not forgotten. Must be getting old when I start waxing nostalgically about buses on here! Still growing old is compulsory, growing up is not so I’m sure it will pass.

UPDATE : BBC Routemaster retrospective in pictures here.
