Quite what the fare was from London to Japan is anybody’s guess, but a day-saver definitely wouldn’t have done it. And yet despite the cost, along with the undoubted difficulties, this bus, once bound for Victoria, is now no longer in use in Nasu.
A decidedly sorry sight for such a stately double-decker, with its previous destinations and prestigious past still proudly,
if somewhat sadly, proclaimed.
However, the past aside, in its new home it was rather half-heartedly turned into a restaurant of sorts, at least on the lower deck.
Whereas upstairs still seems totally untouched, so it may have briefly returned to the past and once again been a sanctuary for those after ciggie.
But either way, not many tickets must have been taken, along with capacity never being much of a concern.
And yet with the driver’s cabin still pretty much complete, maybe, just maybe, one more destination is still doable.
