The two buses on the left are currently in the Lothian Buses fleet.  They were visiting Scottish Vintage Bus Museum for its Open Weekend.  The bus on the right is one from the Vintage Bus Museum's collection.

PARKED ON THE LEFT:  No 285.  This is one of the few remaining buses in the Lothian Buses fleet still painted in maddar and white livery.  Almost all the other buses in the fleet are new-style 'harlequin' livery able to transport wheelchairs.  If No 285 has not already been taken out of service, it is likely to be withdrawn within the next few weeks.

PARKED IN THE CENTRE:  No 170.  This is one of the latest batch of single deckers to be delivered to Lothian Buses.  It was delivered in January 2009 and  is one of 11 buses that have been painted in the special livery for Service 49 that operates between The Jewel (Asda) and Rosewell.

PASSING ON THE RIGHT:  No 812.  This is one of the buses that was operating the Free Internal Service around the Lathalmond site.  It was one of an early batch of Leyland Atlanteans to be delivered to Edinburgh Corporation (before the company became Lothian Region Transport, then Lothian Buses.)
