BBC London Online Commuter game found on Archive.org

I remember playing the Commuter game on the BBC London site 10 years ago. This is one of my favourite online games that I remembered playing till it got taken down somewhere in 2008 (according to Archive.org.) But thankfully Archive.org has saved an archive of the game as well as the webpage so you can play the online game over again.

Route 66 conversion is now confirmed by Transport for London

This is a follow up to my previous article titled "Where's the double deckers for route 66?"

Transport for London has confirmed that the Route 66 will be using double deck buses. Likely to be used is the DW's from the cast off's of route 38 and 242. But the Peak vehicle requirement will be reduced from 14 back to 11 buses because London Buses added extra workings onto route 66 because of the capacity of the single deck buses. 

From their press release

From Saturday 30 August route 66 will convert from single to double deck buses.  
Route 66, which is operated by Arriva Kent Thameside, runs from Romford Station to Leytonstone via Romford Market, Chadwell Heath, Newbury Park Station, Gants Hill Station, Redbridge Station and Wanstead Station.  
On Saturday the route's 60 capacity single deck buses will be replaced by double deck buses that can carry 87 passengers.  
This improvement has been made by Transport for London (TfL) to ensure that all passengers throughout the route can benefit from higher capacity vehicles.

Docklands Light Railway for OpenBVE

The Docklands Light Railway system is an automated Light rail system which serves Docklands as well as East London. During the 1990's Docklands Light Rail became automated, there is no driver but there is a Passenger Service Agent on board which takes care of passengers. In case the train fails, the PSA is able to take control of the train at the drivers console in the front of the train.

On the Video I be driving a B92 stock manufactured by Bombardier. The stations served on the videos as as follows.
