Restored Buses

In the 1990s and early 2000s, a number of former Lothian Region Transport buses operated on the streets of Edinburgh, for one day during each summer, known as the 'Edinburgh Classic Bus Running Day'.

I believe that the photo above would have been taken on one of these days, possibly in 2004.

Bus No. 900, above, was converted to 'open-top' in the days when open-top buses were a rare site on the streets of Edinburgh.

Now there are four companies operating open-top buses in Edinburgh.  All are owned by Lothian Buses.

Here is a photograph of another bus taken on the same day:
