Painting the Buses

Paint was being applied to this bus in Shrubhill works by brush, rather than spray.  The livery is madder and white.

This is still the method used today (in 2008) at the 'Lothian Buses' paint shop at Seafield, but most of the buses are now in the new red, gold and white harlequin livery that includes diamond shapes that are stuck onto the buses, rather than painted.
