Tight Night Borismasters

Route N11 somehow became cleared for Borismaster operation, after some minor road work in the Acton area (between Turnham Green Station and Acton Town Station) has somehow made it clear that Borismasters could actually do the N11.

Buses mainly from the 88 batch are being used on the N11. Therefore, interesting blind fonts are shown here. Compared to an N11 display on the 11 batch vehicles as shown:

There are more condensed font blind displays on the 88 batch LTs.
Yep, I'm that bored.

This does mean that most of the 211 is practically cleared for LT operation as well, hence that may turn to LTs. If the 211 converts, all buses via TfL's headquarters are LT operated. Coincidentally(!). This also means that this is the first conversion of a night bus route where the day route was already converted a significant time prior.

Yep, got a photo of the same bus in consecutive days. Oh how coincidental! The conversion has been the least noteworthy of the lot, as it is just a night bus route. However, that does mean that the LT is now penetrating deeper and deeper into suburban London. Which will only get more intrusive with the new shorter LT. Oh lovely spread for the political machine!
