I think there's a Routemaster or two in the background.

Yes, I can't tell what buses they are exactly, but they are indeed British. It is filmed in private automotive museum near Warsaw - these vehicles waited for the renovation.
Here are all of their London's double-deckers:

Edit: the truck is 1955-59 due to the rounded roof line (metal cab).

The first and third links are all London Routemasters of one kind or another, although they've been through other hands since. The second is a Bristol K-something, I think from the 40s or 50s, and in spite of the caption I don't think it was ever ‘londyński’. The fourth is a Bristol VR, and I'm fairly certain they were never used by London Transport either ... SteveA? :hello:

I'm curious by who the site of this museum has been made - there is a lot of smaller and bigger mistakes. :D

Historic British buses abroad are often described as London buses. I suppose that the owners either get it wrong or think that calling them London buses makes them seem more interesting.

BTW, Michał, those plates – are they special ones for historic vehicles, like the German H plates? And are they transferable, as the open-top RM and the Bristol VR seem to be carrying the same number?
@Gag Halfrunt: Yes, that's true; the Americans are amongst the worst offenders. I've seen pictures of all sorts of double-deckers described as London buses that never saw London in their lives - ex-Crosville and Western/Southern National Bristols, for example.

I think they have two different plates - Bristol = 3A and RM = 2A (but I can be wrong). Unofrtunately I can't answer you are they transferable - I guess no, they aren't.
