Red Bus Round-up

City Sightseeing Olympian 857 well away from its usual beat, arriving at Fleetwood on Tram Sunday
Now that BTS have begun to run the seasonal open-top Blackpool Tour service, there are two competing operators running red buses along the promenade, the ex London Routemasters of the Seafront 12 operation and the open-top City Sightseeing service. The red Routemasters are now beginning to appear with small front adverts either side of the destination box for the Hot Ice show at the Pleasure Beach.

RML 2391 passes City Sightseeing 873 at Talbot Square 

RML 887 and City Sightseeing 818 pass near the Tower
RML 2290 carrying new adverts for the Hot Ice show at the Pleasure Beach either side of the destination box
The latest Routemaster on Seafront 12, RML 2391, is also now carrying Hot Ice adverts on the front of the bus

  1. Notice how empty these route 12 buses seen to be! History tells us that competition by heritage groups - particularly in their home towns - tends to lead to tears....................!
