Re: Brown and cream Gemini double-decker.

I have had a look on the net and believe that the above bus was with Lothian Buses of Edinburgh and that the brown/maroon and cream livery is representative of post-war Edinburgh livery. The registration is SN56 (not as above wrongly given as SO56). Link to picture of similar bus; https://commons.wi...

Re: Shrub Hill & Sherriff Street development

Like you Tim I am surprised that such a tall development has been allowed. I keep hearing about plans to demolish Elgar House to improve the view of the station from the front, but surely now there will be a tall modern building visible in the background instead! :o I am a railway enthusiast but wo...
