  • Memory says that, at least into the mid 1950’s when I left, there were double decker Eastern National buses at the station. I do not remember them ever traveling through the High Road and suspect they were only used on the south bound routes to Tilbury etc. I assume the parking spaces for waiting buses were assigned. By whom, or on whose authority, I have no idea. The double deckers were always parked at the top of Station Approach on the left. The City buses seemed to have the prime parking spots at the bottom closest to the railway exit gate. At least that’s how I remember it.

  • I can only remember the single decker buses, local County buses and the larger Greenline; but then that would have been around the later 40’s. I did not leave Langdon Hills until 1962 but still have a blank memory of double-deckers. (It must be dementia creeping in – oh dear.)

  • The 244 bus from Laindon Station to Basildon Town Centre. The fare 2 pence old money for me as a 8 year old in the late 1950s probably around £2 today.
