BECONTREE HEATH - TRAFALGAR SQUARE ( except Sat night )
This Route was previously numbered 295 but was part of a scheme to renumber all night routes in the "N" series to make available the numbers for the trolleybus replacement routes although  this number remained vacant until 1967 and was used for a local route in the Shepherd's Bush area

It is interesting to see a timing point for Mark Lane
