CHINGFORD HATCH Prince Of Wales  --  WHIPPS CROSS --- WHIPPS CROSS HOSPITAL (Sundays)
Contract extended for two years

 

Go-Ahead London: WS53 | SM15HWJ

When 299 left NP a lot of us wondered what will happen to single-deck sunday 357 element - well here you've got the answer xD
They are now using the single-door baby StreetLites off the 192 - which until the 379 reblind these didn't even have this route on the sets.
Mind you, as the route is half hourly on sunday, these are more than enough for the demand that day lol
