2014 New Routemaster Wrightbus LTZ1312 LT312 61312 Stagecoach Strathtay at Arbroath

Stagecoach London had a few spare "New Bus for London" vehicles they didn't need until 2015 so they decided to try a few out on the Tayway service between Dundee and Arbroath.

This vehicle was being checked over in the garage with destination blind already fitted.

Mind you with a top speed to 40mph on the flat and with no passengers how they'll cope with some of the steep hills and stretches of dual-carriageway has yet to be sorted out...

Following a number of breakdowns and passenger complaints both New Routemasters were withdrawn from timetabled services midway through their third week in service and were only be used "as duplicate vehicles as and when required."

The buses reportedly arrived at West Ham Garage London on 16 December 2014 but are currently the only two buses to be registered as new to a non-London company and therefore cascaded from Scotland to London for a change.
