VICTORIA & ALBERT DOCKS - Connaught Road - Victoria Dock Road - Freemasons Road - New Barn Street - Balaam Street - Plaistow - West Ham Lane - STRATFORD BROADWAY (Suns) - Leytonstone Road - Crownfield Road - Leyton Station - Markhouse Road - Forest Road - Tottenham Hale - Seven Sisters Road - MANOR HOUSE STATION (Mon-Sat)
NEW ROUTE replaced withdrawn section of Route 41 between Tottenham Hale and Victoria & Albert Docks.


RM68 pulls up at the southbound stop at Leyton Station on the High Road and heading toward the V & A Docks via Balaam Street and WH's route 241. 
Of note is the disused offside route number box - painted over from behind and left in situ until its next overhaul which - in this case - would be seven months hence. 
This was a rare sunny moment on this otherwise annoyingly dull day.
