CHINGFORD HATCH  -  WHIPPS CROSS  - WHIPPS CROSS HOSPITAL ( Suns )
Rerouted at Walthamstow direct via Hoe Street instead of double run via Walthamstow Central Bus Station

When 299 left NP a lot of us wondered what will happen to single-deck sunday 357 element - well here you've got the answer xD

They are now using the single-door baby StreetLites off the 192 - which until the 379 reblind these didn't even have this route on the sets.
