A total of 2876 Routemasters were built, 2760 for London Transport.The historic bus whose value is rising year by year. It's easy to find RM and very rarely on sale RML-s ( lenghtened )
The RML is the high capacity version of the Routemaster designed for the major central London routes. The extra capacity was obtained by adding a 2ft 4in
bay in the centre of the body and is instantly recognisable due to the square windows that rather look like an afterthought (which, of course, they were!).
A total of 524 Routemasters RML were built
RMLs 880-903 were the experimental batch (making at moment selling Routemaster more unique RML894) which were subsequently followed by the
main batch of 500 vehicles (2261 to 2760).
The RML was also the ultimate in terms of the bus weight per passenger which, at a mere 240 lbs (compared to the standard RM's 257 lbs), is lighter than most modern buses and endowed it with excellent fuel consumption.
