Green Line (Part 1)
Green Line started as a collection of cross-London bus services linking suburban towns through the city centre.   In the 1970s and 80s it grew into a group of local coach services operated by London Country.   Latterly it is now a marketing brand for an ever dwindling collection of limited stop services run by local companies.   Below is a brief sample of Green Line operation.
