WOODFORD BRIDGE Crown & Crooked Billet - Chigwell Road - Snakes Lane - St Barnabas Road - Broadmead Road - Woodford Green - Woodford New Road - Forest Road - Walthamstow - Ferry Lane - Tottenham Hale - Bruce Grove - Lordship Lane - Westbury Avenue - TURNPIKE LANE STATION (Suns) -: Wood Green - Palmers Green - Green Lanes - WINCHMORE HILL Station Road (Mon-Sat) -: Ridge Avenue - Village Road - Park Avenue - London Road - ENFIELD TOWN Sydney Road (Mon-Fri peaks)
Trolleybus Replacement Route for Route 625
The total running time from Woodford Bridge to Enfield Town at this time was 69 minutes - I doubt if this could be achieved in a car these days.

1960 entry
This entry has been taken from the May 1960 allocation book which is available for sale
Studying this entry I realised that Napier Arms was used as a terminus - I always thought that this was exclusive to trolleybuses
