Hounslow (AV) allocation transferred to Route 162

224 times

The map here is an extract from the July 1952 Historical Map obtained from  The Greater London Bus Map

The 224 is unique here in the fact that it disappears at Wraysbury only to reappear again . The railway line shown is the branch line from West Drayton to Staines West was replaced after the Dr Beeching cuts by peak hour Route 225 which went via Poyle Road and Moor Lane

Prior to the service terminating at Laleham the terminus was Stanwell War Memorial and this section is shown on the map as being replaced by Route 162
