ORPINGTON Goodmead Road - Farnborough - Bromley Common - Bromley - Grove Park - Baring Road - Lee - LEWISHAM - Crofton Park - BROCKLEY RISE (Sat shopping hrs)
NEW ROUTE replacing Route 94 between Brockley Rise and Bromley - the 47 between Bromley and Farnborough and the 51 between Farnborough and Orpington.
The one advantage of this route was the ability to have the crew changeover at the home garage unlike Route 94,
which was a suggestion from Bob Baker
