Re: found a green bus here in Ca USA anyone can tell me what kind???

This is RLH 3 an ex-London Transport RLH, built upon the Regent lll chassis. It is not a Routemaster, which was a later AEC/ London Transport (LT) double decker.

RLH3 ( KYY503) was built in 1950 by AEC with an MCW low height body. It served with LT until the mid-1960's. Not all buses in Britain are are red and London Tranport country area were Green not red (LT Central area buses were red).

I own RLH62 and I am currently rebuilding it back to 1965 condition. You can get more info on RLH type buses on my friend's website : www.timebus.co.uk/rlh

They are quite rare buses as LT only had 76 of them (RLH's) when compared to the approx 4500 standard RT type double deckers. The engine is not a Rolls-Royce but an AEC A208 9.6 litre diesel.
