Lothian Buses, Termini 

I've now added all terminus changes from 2007 to 2014 to this page  -  just in time for next round of terminus changes that might be expected when trams start running in Edinburgh in May 2014!

I'm continuing to take photos of these termini, but have not found the time recently to add many of them to the EdinPhoto web site recently.
