RM6 at Dorking Running Day, 9/04 RM6 at Showbus, 9/04
Arriva's RM6 was one of fifty London buses covered in gold to celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee. In RM6's case it was gold paint, which made a nicer job than the vinyl used elsewhere.
Here it makes an appearance at Dorking Running Day in September 2004, and at Duxford for the Showbus celebration of 50 years of the Routemaster.
