Not the first time Borisbuses have worked the N21, they have worked the route quietly following its conversion
Quietly - what do you mean by that? I've heard of an LT that went Trafalgar Square - NX, but that's all that hit my ears. Oh, and how comes this time nobody seems to be rushing to catch the LTs on (N)21, unlike previous converted routes that appeared to have some kind of almost a 'race' before - when I caught the first Boris I seemed to be only folk on Flickr to feature a picture of one for first couple of days...
Put History N21 into LVF and you will see the apperances on the route...no one really bothers with night routes....And I don't think most people see it as a race to take a picture and be the first to upload it lmao

Well buses are one of those things that unearth my competitive nature And there is a small pool of enthusiasts who do bother with night stuff actually, think I've earned my place among them now 😶
Dah, I keep on forgetting not everyone in this hobby is as passionate about these as I… I blame my ASD
I've been checking route N21 on LVF to keep track of LTs operating on the route but can't get down there at that time to see them myself. I'm unsure whether I'd bother with night routes if I was able to, I'm probably a bit more interested in the buses themselves than the routes they operate. Still you can get types in 'unusual' places on night routes, but that comes back to the point that I can't really go into London the night before and wait until the early morning when (in summer) it's light enough to actually see them properly in photos or videos.
Today I finally took the 81 all the way to Slough for the first time since August 2013 until today the furthest west I'd been in the last 3.5 years was the Stanwell Moor Road roundabout. I got ADE38, but that got curtailed, which gave me the chance to get TA242, a vehicle that wasn't at Hounslow when I last took the 81 to Slough!
ADE38 as AV256 - 81 to Langley, Fire Station. Accident on Staines Road in Hounslow caused a lot of traffic along Bath Road, causing us to be overtaken by ADE43 and having TA242 about 2 minutes behind! Also saw DE959 and DE1012 together on the 117.
