Day 4–London

Made a circuit of the city today. Started out by taking the Circle Line to tower hill, and waiting for a #15 with a heritage Route master on it #RM652. After that a visit was made to Charring Cross Station, and a walk across the bridge over the Thames where Route master RML2711 was seen now employed as a smoothie stand. After that a we checked out Waterloo Station, and took a ride on the district and Piccadilly Lines to see the Transit Museum at Covenant Garden. The museum is spread across three levels, with the 1800s on the top level, early 1900s on the middle level and lower levels. After spending several hours exploring the museum where they had some old tube trains, and buses on display we took a route 11 bus over to St. Pauls' Cathedral. After that we visited Victoria station and the Victoria Coach station. At the rail stations you could not see much as the trains were behind fare gates. Once back at Victoria station i went and got some photos of the tube at Barbican and called it a day.
