At times, I am amazed with the manner of British (or European) people preserving something. I should say, coming from third country complete with its mentality, I fall short in seeing the future value of many national heritage should it be well kept. And that's include this beautiful vintage red double decker bus, which probably just look like a public transport for commoner during it's time.
However now, double-deckers have become a symbolic image of the country in particular the use of the red double decker buses in London. A particularly iconic example was the Routemaster bus, which had been a staple of the public transport network in London for nearly half a century following its introduction in 1956.
This bus was parked on the ground of Stoke Goldington during the Steam Rally few weeks back. You can wander up/down of the bus freely (no charge) however you can also give up donation for the upkeeping for the bus (which what most people do), I bet this attitude will never works in my country.
