PADDINGTON, BLACKWALL STATION (except evenings), EAST HAM White Horse ( evenings)
Withdrawn between Poplar and Canning Town, buses diverting from East Indai Dock Road via Cotton Street to Blackwall Station DLR.
EXTRACT FROM TLB434 ref above change
The MS early OPo journeys on the 15 were converted to crew operation and the crew operation was also extended later into the evening. In practice, opo buses commmence to work westbound after the evening peak while the crew buses return to base eastbound, the last RML leaving Paddington at 2017. All RML journeys whether returning to the garage or not are scheduled to finish at Blackwall, although the evening OPo journeys run to and from East Ham (replacing Route 115 which is daytime only). In practice some RML's are extended to East Ham to cover inadequacies on the 115 and indeed one Mon-Fri pm crew journey runs at 1456 from Aldgate to Canning Town Station to cover heavy school loadings although this arrangement was withdrawn from 02.12.01.
