|Canada Water Bus Station|
|The current end of route 1, Holborn Kingsway|
The No 2 starts from Marylebone station and in an endeavour to not use the underground in zone one, to minimise cost, I ended up walking to Leicester Square then Oxford Circus and on to the station. This took me an hour in total.

|Norwood Garage the end point of the No 2|
I walked from there to West Norwood railway station and caught a train to Crystal Palace low level railway station and arrived at 1422. From there it is just a short walk up Anerley Hill! to the bus station at Crystal Palace Parade to start the journey on the No 3 where I arrived at 1433.

Here I boarded AD Trident AD Enviro 400 TE679 at 1602 and set off for Archway.
|Bus stop at Waterloo station from where I used to get the No 341 and previously the No 171a to work|
|Boarding the No 4 to head north for Archway|
|This time crossing Waterloo bridge looking east to Blackfriars bridge|
|The destination of Archway reached|
From here I caught the northern line south to Balham and caught a train home, satisfied that at least I had achieved 4 buses, each journey lasting around an hour in duration. However, this did mean I did not avoid zone one and thus paid the maximum Oyster fare for zones 1-5. I could have used the London Overground to circle the north and west of London to reach Clapham Junction, but by now I was getting a bit travel weary!
