I believe I saw P705BTA yesterday, in all-white livery, heading north of Loughton towards the M11/M25. Maybe on it's way to Roadrunner?

It could of been on Lea Valley Buses route 255 or 555, as these routes pass the Waltham Abbey M25 junction. Lea Valley has a connection with Roadrunner, as the MD of Lea Valley used to be/still is MD for Roadrunner. Not sure if there is a definate link though.

Dart Y862TGH   Volvo B6's P705 / 5 / 10 / 13BTA: Roadrunner, Harlow.

All these buses are in the Lea Valley Buses fleet at a depot in Loughton. Lea Valley Buses may be a part of Roadrunner though.

Roadrunner is not part of Lea Valley. Steve Stapleton, owner of Lea Valley used to be director of Roadrunner. Just business connections. And theres 6 Volvos from what Steve told me
