- routemaster = RM, RML, RouteMaster Lengthened, bus, doubledecker = The Routemaster is a lovely old bus; the iconic London red doubledecker in many minds. Designed in the 1950s to replace the London trolleybus fleet, it was still in heavy use more than fifty years later beyond the turn of the 21st century, regardless of many of the buses in service being 30 or 40 years old compared with a design life of 15 years! See the Routemaster Association and read "The Routemaster Handbook", Andrew Morgan, Capital Transport Publishing 2001, ISBN 1-85414-237-2, or "The Bus We Loved", Travis Elborough, Granta 2006, ISBN 1-86207-885-8.
