#AYearOfBuses 342: Liverpool Street – East Dulwich
Welcome to day 342 on #AYearOfBuses – and London’s long-established route 42!
Tracing its history all the way back to 1912, when it ran between Finsbury Park and Clapton Pond via Seven Sisters, the 42 is one of the capital’s longest-established routes – though it’s been through its fair number of changes in that time!
It’s of particular note in recent times for being home to a small fleet of relatively rare East Lancs Myllennium-bodied Scania N94UBs, which in turn were later replaced with equally nimble Optare Esteem-bodied Enviro200s.
