The RF was the standard single-decker in the London Transport fleet in the 1950s and 1960s, before replacement by modern, mostly rear-engined buses.  The AEC design incorporated an engine under the floor, a pre-war idea that reached its peak in this fleet.  The same design was used for coaches and buses, both red and green, with detailed differences. NLE 627 is part of the Roger Burdett Collection.
