Home History Specification Survivors Fleet No Chassis No Operators Contractors Organisations Mobile Homes What's New


North Downs was an independent operator based in Orpington, who also ran routes in the Horsham area. They were part of the small operator scene for a number of years, filling the gaps which Southdown, London Transport/London Country and Aldershot & District/Alder Valley found to be unviable. This included a Dorking–Coldharbour–Ockley service which replaced the one-time LT route there..
