poor old RLH53

Poor old RLH53. Your site picture of RLH53..69..71 shows RLH53 in need of a good makeover.This takes me back to a time around 1959 when RLH1..RLH23..RLH53 were in store in the small outside yard at the back of Harrow Weald garage. RLH53 looks in the same condition now as it did then. I think they had been delicenced after cuts in the service due to the 1958 busmans strike. Powers from above must of told HD staff to withdraw the three lowest fleet numbers for storage. All later found work at other garages infact RLH53 went to Dalston in May1959 for the then new route 178 and stayed there untill the route finished in 1971.
