On Tuesday I had a follow up appointment down in Sussex for my eye and it went so smoothly I had time to kill in London on the way back. I had planned to go to St James' Park to chill but as I crossed Victoria Bus Station I remembered that the 73's were in the process of being converted to Borismaster operations so strolled over to take a look and lo and behold first in the line was not just a Borismaster but LT500, the 500th Borismaster. As gift horses go this was a big one so I jumped on for a ride, not quite sure where it was going but what the heck I had time!

Another pic on Andy's post shows LT318 with a very brave advert indeed - by Tag Heuer watches. I'm not sure a London bus is the best way to advertise accurate time keeping but it's certainly original. LT343 has also been done up in the same allover ad, and I saw it at the Oxford terminus of the 137's, and by lucky chance LT344 pulled up behind to give me consecutive vehicles.

Now it may not feel very much like ice cream weather but that hasn't stopped Walls embarking on a Magnum campaign on some Borismasters. Here is LT111 advertising the new Magnum pink raspberry.
