|The foreshadowing to come...?|

The night tube bus routes ending was a shame as they brought more to the table than simply interchanging with a station of a Night Tube. For example Clapham Junction's nightlife effecting the 319 and Sutton's cries and woes for the loss of N213 into Croydon brought back in the form of the 154.

The original 2-series single decks, are they still single deck? Exactly how many single deck routes can be double decked? Is it an efficient use of resources to do so? This title is pretty long isn't it? I've taken inspiration from light novels.
|London's debatably deckable single deck bus population. |
Blood red city roads.
Even if you aren't well versed in the numbering system you would've noticed how majority of routes in Central London are numbered below 100, with the predecessor being a short mutation of current 366 between Jenkins Lane and Barking, but via Gascoigne Road.
Either way, I explore, mind you with calculations that are invalid from the start due to different conditions (i.e not fair tests), to come up with the answer to questions on the line of: "Is it cost-effective to convert single deck routes to double deck?" With the mindset of "if it can take them [double decks], convert them." For now though...

So it's pretty normal to have ideas to help improve the transport network, whether it be extra vehicles, joining links that aren't there, or perhaps slimming down routes that could be losing money. In practice everyone has their own extremes and minimalism to this practice, and some can feasibly work whilst some could need a revision at best.
I can only speak for what I'm local to, and after saying what I've just said I'd be a hypocrite to mention something outside my boundary. Example: Extend 258 over the 395 there wasn't a need for a brand new route to replace 398's Greenford section. Now that I've branded myself as a hypocrite, that's an idea I've harvested from someone else.
Unlike the me of the past, where I'd have ideas for a lot of things, I've succumbed to accepting what I have dear, and gripping my knife in cold blood whenever I receive news of a downgrade in my area. A la 468 frequency cut and 250 cut to West Croydon.
Many of my ideas can be viewed on my Flickr photostreams, my main (through this album) and my newer photostream because I'm a cheapskate. As well as that, my coined 433 idea is one of the first blog posts I've made. I won't link them, if you want to read them you search them... baka.
So now this epilogue of fooling you into only one photo in my main's album since I deleted a lot of stuff and giving you the option of my reviewing my wildest dreams I present you another one, though I'll add as much nuance as I can and give explanations where possible. Disclaimer: I'll add some ideas I've curated on my own. Oh the shock. Jokes aside:
