COMMENT
When the 61B arrived at Chislehurst War Memorial the passengers were told to get off as the bus finished there (not the stand though). When every one had got off the driver got out of the cab to change all blinds to 228 to Eltham. Thus customers wanting to go through to Sidcup had to reboard and pay again.
The 228/61B blind change occurred in the other direction. It was always in effect a circular route.

The TU instigated the change to 228A/C which was common sense.
