Get ready for a blast from the past as vintage buses will be traveling along historic north London routes for a day.

London buses from the past are set to drive next week (November 5) as part of a London bus running day in aid of the British Legion and commemorating the 30th anniversary of Chalk Farm Garage.

This includes the 24 from Warren Street to Hampstead Heath, the 29 from Mornington Crescent to Finsbury Park, the 31 from Kilburn Park to Camden Town, the 68 from Chalk Farm to Waterloo, the 74 from Camden Town to Baker Street and the 139 from Camden Town to Golders Green.

The buses have a set timetable throughout the day to serve bus enthusiasts and those who wish to relive transport history.

While they retain the vintage look of London’s buses, they will not be running as part of the Transport for London network and will instead be operated by retired Metroline conductor Trevor Muir.

To look at the timetable, visit:

No fares are charged for passengers, but there will not be easy access for disabled passengers or children’s buggies.

A programme is being sold which includes a history of Chalk Farm Garage.

All proceeds go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
