The rainbow ‘Ride with Pride’ New Routemaster bus was created to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) diversity in London. It was the first bus of its kind and has gone on to inspire other cities around the world. The bus was created by OUTbound, Transport for London’s (TfL) LGBT+ network as part of an award winning community engagement campaign. It went into service on 2 March 2015 on route 8, and moved to route 15 in October 2015 operated by Stagecoach London. The bus has taken part in two Pride in London parades, and many other high profile events raising awareness of LGBT diversity.

During its time on the road it was complemented by two other vehicles – a Docklands Light Railway Train and a Black Cab, all using a similar design. Two limited edition Oyster wallets were produced featuring the rainbow bus, and it gained a huge following in Twitter as part of OUTbound’s #RidewithPride campaign. The original concept and idea was created by Martyn Loukes BEM and the design was created in-house and sponsored by Stagecoach London. The bus also features in driving simulation computer game, where players can drive the bus along the Pride in London parade route.

The other cities to have launched rainbow buses since March 2015 are Toronto, Calgary and Brighton. There are also Ride with Pride taxis in Southampton, and there was a rainbow train in Copenhagen. OUTbound is one of TfL’s diversity networks and was also responsible for changing 48-traffic lights around Trafalgar square to feature same-sex images and gender symbols in 2016. Follow OUTbound on Twitter to find out more about these projects at @TfLLGBT.

It was in 1884 that the Brighton, Hove & Preston United bus company was formed, a consequence of the amalgamation of a number of smaller horse bus companies and it soon became the main transport operator, the forerunner to today’s Go Ahead Group owned Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company. Bus No. 489, BJ63 UJT, was launched on July 24, 2015 and is a tribute to Brighton’s famous beach and fun-packed seafront, with a livery consisting of a giant ‘99’ ice-cream, massive sunglasses and a huge seagull’s head, on a background of deckchair stripes, beach-hut colours and deco polka dots. The Beach Bus is dedicated to Andy Durr, the former Brighton Mayor known to many as Brighton's Mr Seafront or ‘the Seafront Reviver’.

Formed on January 1, 1859, the London General Omnibus Company (LGOC) was an amalgamation of the many independent horse-drawn omnibus services that were then operating in London and, by nationalisation in 1933, was the largest operator in London. The deregulation of London bus services during the 1980s led, in 1989, to London Transport creating a series of bus operating companies with names of geographic or historic significance to the capital, including London General Transport Services Limited. The new London General was initially privatised by management buy-out, but was subsequently acquired by the Go-Ahead Group in May 1996, becoming the largest bus company operating in London. The London General Heritage livery harks back to the Edwardian heyday of the LGOC and is represented here on LTZ 1050 operating on route 88, the former ‘Clapham Omnibus’ route running from Camden Town to Clapham Common, via central London, to which New Routemasters were introduced on August 22, 2015.

AEC Routemaster RT (70th Anniversary Of Royal Wedding)

Corgi 1:64 AEC Routemaster Diecast Model Bus CC82327 This AEC Routemaster RT Diecast Model Bus is Turquoise and features working wheels. It is made by Corgi and is 1:64 scale (approx. 12cm / 4.7in long).

2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of the wedding of HM Queen Elizabeth II & HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. To celebrate this historic occasion, Corgi has produced a die-cast Classic Routemaster and Mini in unique commemorative liveries.

At Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947 at 11:30am, in front of 2000 invited guests, Princess Elizabeth was married to Philip Mountbatten in a service officiated by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and was broadcast by radio to over 200 million people worldwide. Distant cousins, Princess Elizabeth had first met Philip Mountbatten, the youngest child and only son to Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg, at a wedding in 1934. They met again in 1937 and began their courtship in 1939 with the exchange of letters. Secretly engaged in 1946, the formal engagement was announced on July 9, 1947, following Princess Elizabeth’s 21st birthday. Princess Elizabeth’s satin bridal gown was designed by Norman Hartnell, Dressmaker to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, the material being purchased by the use of ration coupons. Over 10,000 congratulatory telegrams were received and over 2,500 wedding presents were gifted, from across the world. Corgi is celebrating the 70th Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with this special commemorative die-cast model.
