London Visit ~ Part 2 UPDATED

Monday 25th August:
After a brisk walk to Woking Train Station in Surrey (Observing one of the boldest liveries in the area- Abellio Surrey Bus), I caught an express SouthWestTrains service into London Waterloo. Abellio Surrey Bus operate a number of bus services in Surrey mainly using SLF Mini Darts & Enviro 200s, although they also have ALX400s and Millennium East Lanc Darts too!
I really like their livery with the grey & red swirls, But some buses were plain white with Red Skirts! (Photo not my own- Didn't have camera ready myself to get any Abellio Surrey Bus photos). AbellioSurreyBus have the same seat pattern as the newly refurbished AbellioGreaterAnglia Class321s.

Enviro400 in London. My photo:

On arrival at Waterloo we changed onto the London Underground, alighting at Covent Garden to visit the London Transport Museum. I really enjoyed the museum & it's certainly worth a visit- there's lots of displays & rolling stock and of course buses! Contained in the museum there's a front (Front only) of a Gemini, A Route master, and a Single Decker Bedford Coach! Photos below are my own

Tuesday 26th: We travelled to Greenwich on the DLR (Docklands light railway). I really enjoyed the journey but didn't see many buses this day- Mainly just sightseeing!

Wednesday 27th ~ London Eye:
Whilst on the London Eye I took many photos of Buses, Waterloo Railway station, Trains & also of course the sights! More train detail on NorfolkScene

Thursday 28th ~ Thorpe Park:
I never realised that Thorpe Park hire out a number of Buses from Sullivan Buses. They operate a shuttle from Thorpe Park to Staines Train station, Mainly for those not yet old enough to drive or families without a car. There was Weight Renown's, Darts, and Enviro 200s- all in a Dark Blue Livery with White Branding for Thorpe Park (Sullivan buses have a Red livery, so I assume they're painted specially for shuttle)
Photos not my own, Just to show an example of the liveries:

Part 3 will contain the last 3 days of my holiday, including the journey home
