1946 RT 7-FXT 182


In April 1946, three 2RT2, including RT7, were painted in an experimental livery which was intended to replace the war-time one, as used on our first RT model, 2920. This new simplified livery consisted of an all-over red body with black wings and wheel arches, a thin cream line above the upper-deck windows and a cream band between the upper and lower decks. Our model features RT7 in this short-lived livery, operating on Route 28 out of Chelverton Road garage, where it had entered service in March 1940. During that overhaul, the bell cord had been replaced with two bell pushes on the lower deck, a curtain had been added behind the front lower deck window and the handrails at the front had been re-sited.
