Operated were; RLH 3 from 1965 to 1968, and RLH 15 + RLH 41 from 1965 to 1967. All three were painted in the mid blue and white livery of Upminster and District.

I remember going to school on a mixture of RTs. I also seem to remember seeing pictures also of them offering regular services to Spurs home games (RLH 3 at Manor House sticks in the mind).
The stage services ceased in the mid/late '60s, although there is still one road where a couple of their old Bus Stop flags still exist 40+ years since the last bus!
Later PVS moved out to Silver End in Essex using the closed Eastern National Shed for preparation work, with overspill storage in a farmer's field, and I remember seeing a number of the last London Country RLHs there including RLH 14.

I was one of the users, as the three companies in succession had the contract to take me to school in Brentwood. It was quite interesting as you never knew what double deck oddity was going to turn up. When I started it was mostly RTs, an RTL and an RTW with the ex BEA 220CXK (the three Super RLHs had gone by then), then a raft of Alder Valley Lolines, Southampton/Portsmouth Corporation and South Wales AECs, but then the six green RLHs and back to RTs.

During this time, there continued to be a high turnover of second hand vehicles from a variety of sources, but with a significant core of LT ex Red RTs.
Blue Line rebodied the chassis of a long ex LT RT that came from Osbornes of Tollesbury, MXX 186, with the body from a green RT acquired from London Country.
The Business went I think late '70s and is now an office block.
