treadigraph,

When I were a lad the 194 ran from Croydon Airport to Forest Hill, the 194a (nearest to my house) ran from Thornton Heath to Beckenham Junction (sometimes terminating at Monks Orchard) and the 194b, I can't recall where that started off but it terminated on Shrublands Estate, in those days the 119 was Bromley South or North Station to West Croydon, there was a 119a (Sunday Service) also but my brain cells are deficient meanwhile there was a 194c sevice that only operated on Sundays.

Then the baskets changed to one man buses, the 166 from Beckenham Junction to Chipstead Valley however all adventure was lost ... one could no longer jump from an open rear plartorm as the bus would go around a corner
