Lopping Trees For London Buses (1943, British Pathe)
Footage of a London Transport treelopper, 648J (GK6277), which was formerly ST1001, new in 1933. Its career as a bus was interrupted while on loan to Bournemouth Corporation when its Tilling body was destroyed in an air raid in 1943. The chassis was returned to London and fitted with a body from a different ST for use as a treelopper, replacing an NS type. 648J served in this guise until 1953.
