London General WHV21 on route 432 in Brixton

This Wright bodied Volvo B5LH hybrid is normally on route 19 but drifts to other routes from time to time.

 

As a number route 432 was introduced in 2003 as a localisation of the southern section of route 2. In reality route 2 ran in overlapping sections at most times before that, with many buses working Brixton to Crystal Palace. It was extended to Anerley 4 months after its creation, partly I recall as Crystal Palace had too many buses trying to squeeze on the bus station stands.

 

Arriva ran this route from Norwood until April this year when Go-Ahead took over. Most of the allocation runs from Stockwell Garage but one bus (not this one) operates from Camberwell, that bus shared with route 468.
