Lothian Fleetlist Page

In general, I update this fleetlist roughly monthly - after Buses magazine and the PSV Circle News Sheet. Any corrections or comments are welcome - you can email me at . When I do these updates, I'll also put in any other things I've spotted, or heard about (only reliable information), so sometimes this list might be a wee bit ahead of Buses or the PSV Circle News Sheet.


This fleetlist was last updated on 28/3/19 with Buses April 2019 and the February and March 2019 PSV Circle News Sheets.

Ancillaries all come at the end.

Seating 

I have followed the system used by the PSV Circle with the following idiosyncrasies:

I don't distinguish between Partial and Full Open Top vehicles; all of them are O.

Express-type individual seating is denoted by E.

Recovery vehicles and vans are not buses hence R is used instead of B.

R/B

Lothian currently don't have nay route branded buses. Where a vehicle carries an overall advert (denoted by ADV in the livery column), or a full side advert (denoted by before the livery worn by the rest of the bus), the route branding column carries a note of what the advert is for.


Notes

DT indicates a driver trainer.

PO indicates a privately owned bus stored on Lothian premises. Where this is a former Lothian vehicle, its old fleetnumber is still shown.

The vehicle history is then given, starting with the most recent.
