  • A Sunday service RT operated was allocated to the 64 from the October 1949, eight months later in May 1950 the Monday to Saturday service was replaced by RT Type to make the route fully converted. The current PVR was Monday to Friday 10RT, Sat 9RT & Sun 6RT.
  • On the 4th March 1959, there were some changes to the routing of the 64. The route Monday to Saturday evenings, and also Sunday’s ran between Addington and West Croydon Station.
