Readers Comment
Route 205. I'm always fascinated by this route because, although it's quite new, it is almost the same as Shilibeer's original horse bus route. Only the eastern bit of the 205, from Moorgate to Mile End seems to depart from Shilibeer. Nobody seems to acknowledge this. Is this fact worth a mention on your website, rather than just giving the impression that it's a modern route?
