The Routemmaster’s Demise

Signature British buses rumble into retirement: “The Routemaster’s demise as part of everyday London life has triggered an outpouring of nostalgia. The British Broadcasting Corp. is running an evening of TV program celebrating the bus on Saturday. The composer Tom Smail has composed a ‘Requiem for the Routemaster,’ an orchestral piece that evokes the throb of an engine, the tinkle of a bell and the zip of a conductor’s ticket machine.
The German-born London photographer Ralf Obergfell helped create a tribute to the much-loved bus on the Web site www.routemasters.co.uk.”
