The No.73 Routemaster bus makes its last run through the city this Friday night.

There is interest building on the bus blog to join it on its last voyage from Victoria to Tottenham and there is speculation as to the volume and types of people who might be there. It'll be an interesting experience in many ways. It's bound to be strange to be on a packed bus at that time of night (it departs Victoria Station at 00:53hrs) with passengers focused on the journey more than the destination. It's definitely going to be surreal, given I fly in that day from the U.S and also troublesome to be left in Tottenham at 01.47 (though I doubt I will get that far). I'll be the one squashed in a corner armed with a camera, notepad, whiskey and chocolate.
I'm looking forward to it.
Want to join me?
