In the immortal words of Blakey, "Get that bus out!"
They will be running on various different routes from Gravesend to Dartford, Longfield and other towns and villages such as Hartley, Betsham and Cliffe. Further details here
The double decker bus, seen running through Northfleet last year, is a Leyland Titan which originally entered service with Leeds City Transport in 1959. Since 2005 it has been owned and operated by Ensign Bus Company based in Purfleet, Essex.This single decker is a Guy Special (GS 15) which I photographed a couple of months ago at a rally in Dartford. The bus was built by Guy Motors in Wolverhampton for London Transport and entered service in 1953. It remained in service with them until 1969 when it was sold to private owners.
The Guy Motor Company had a very distinctive emblem which appeared on the bonnets of their buses and other commercial vehicles - "Feathers in Our Cap".
They were taken over by Jaguar in 1961 and later became absorbed into British Leyland finally ceasing vehicle production in 1982. Bus production under the Guy named had already ended in 1964.
