Snack Bar and Two Routemaster Buses

Princes Street Closed to Traffic

Princes Street between the Scott Monument and the West End was closed to traffic in Autumn 2011 to allow the lines for Edinburgh's new trams to be re-laid.  The first attempt to lay these lines was not successful.

The re-laying of these lines will resume after the Christmas and New Year Holiday, but for the present festive period, Christmas and New Year, Princes Street has been opened again to pedestrians - but not to traffic

Snack Bar

This snack bar together with two old London Routemaster Buses  to allow the customers to eat their food inside, was set up in December 2011.  Both buses are in London Transport livery, except that only the bus on the left has a LONDON TRANSPORT name on its side.  The bus on the right has a title in the same font, but it reads EDINBURGH TRANSPORT.
