#AYearOfBuses 271: Highgate Village – Moorgate

We’re taking another trip to London today on #AYearOfBuses!

Changed little since its inception in 1960, London’s route 271 links affluent commuters from Highgate Village with Moorgate, close to the City of London.

Introduced to replace trolleybus route 611, it was operated with AEC Routemasters from new, but was an early pioneer of rear-engined, front entrance buses, becoming home to a trial fleet of Leyland Atlanteans for a short period in 1965.

It reverted back to RM operation just 6 months later, which in turn were replaced with Fleetlines one year later, before the Fleetlines themselves were replaced by Routemasters!
