RFS - London Transport RF (Sightseeing)
The Prototype

Replacement of the London Transport single deck fleet did not start until 1951. The standard single decker was the AEC Regal IV which was launched in 1949. After successful trials in 1950 with demonstrator UMP 227, an order was placed for 700 with Park Royal bodies.

A change in regulation length to 30ft came too late to affect the first twenty five which were built to 27`6" RF 1-25 (LUC 201-25) were intended for private hire, tours and London sightseeing and as a consequence were fitted with roof observation windows, Green Line seats and a p.a. system.

The first RF`s were licensed in time for the Festival of Britain in May 1951. All 25 coaches were allocated to the Central area at Camberwell, Holloway, Middle Row, Riverside, Streatham, Willesden, Hammersmith and Upton Park.

RFS in Greenline livery

In 1956 RF 16-25 were transferred to Green Line services and fitted with side route boards. They were withdrawn in 1962. The livery was Lincoln green below waste level but including the folding doors and surrounding areas. Above was flake grey and lining out including fleet names and numbers in red.

The Kit

The Kit has a one piece body and chassis/seating unit in resin with a metal base. Correct profile wheels WL3D are included from the L.B.C. range and moulded roof light windows and windscreen are included.
