At the start of the 2012 season of tours to the Forth Bridge Dennis Trident, Plaxton President number 651 is seen on the Mound with her new personalised registration plate XIL 1484 (formerly SK52 OHN) in the warm March sunshine.

If you have friends visiting or just want an away day with a difference this summer then why not take a three hour cruise trip from Waverley to the Forth Bridge? Continue on a boat for the magnificent sea trip on the Forth to Inch Colm island. You can even spend a few hours extra on the island to observe the breathtaking views of all the surrounding landscape as well as catching delightful sights of puffins and seals.
Of course the highlight of the trip is travelling in Lothian's specially painted Alexander Dennis Trident 651 from the centre of town, through the New Town and out to South Queensferry. A quiet commentary adds accent to the journey and your guaranteed plenty of shots of the bus at every angle possible!
