Route 406 Running Day dedicated to Epsom Coaches

The annual Route 406 Running Day arranged by the London Transport Museum will take place this year on Sunday 18th June and will be dedicated to the team at Epsom Coaches.

The service will feature a number of types of bus which have operated the route over the last 65 years. The free service will operate from Kingston Cromwell Road Bus Station to Epsom, with some journeys extended over the former route across Epsom Downs to Tadworth. A feeder service will operate from Redhill in the morning and back at the end of the day.

Among the buses in service will be RM2, the second prototype Routemaster that was trialed on the route 60 years ago.

The timetable for the special operation will be posted here nearer the time.
