Just been looking at my well thumbed and not too well underlined abc London Transport Buses which shows me that was TD105, I only have one of them underlined TD54 JXC247.Ian,as a visitor to Heathrow in my younger days and spending many hours on top of the Queens Building watching the now defunct BEA,BOAC,TWA,Pan Am 707`s VC10s and so on,there were these shuttles everywhere!!!!!There were also as I recall a single deck type with a raised rear section to maybe a twin deck,can`t remember ,we used to call them Airport Buses.
Lets go back 60 odd years,I found this the other day,I think its a Leyland Tiger but of course could be wrong,pic is at Mill Hill East tube station,the crew have gone for a cuppa with the station staff as they did and any passenger from other bus routes or the train could get on the bus and wait for departure.This type ran at the bottom of my road for years until replaced with RT`s,remember it well,twin crew with a conductor and now talking of the time before I even went to school,Inglis REME army depot in the Background is now a housing estate!!!!!!!1 View attachment 280508
