You asked

While I was searching for the data for the roof codes of buses for Tfl bus, I found a link which is inaccessible containing the information of the Bus Roof codes. Since I am interested in these codes as they are very similar to the ways that Kowloon Motor Bus in Hong Kong do to their fleet of buses. I would like to as for a table of the buses codes and their types and models if available.
