NORWOOD JUNCTION - Woodside Green - Cherry Orchard Road - East Croydon - South Croydon - Purley - Kenley - Whyteleafe - CATERHAM VALLEY (Sun)
NEW ROUTE: This was in fact Route 197 converted to OPO on Sunday but because of tight clearances in Addiscombe the route was diverted via Cherry Orchard Road instead of Dingwall Road and thus had to be renumbered 197B.
