Routemasters are back

Now that tourist season is upon us once more, Halifax's fleet of AEC Routemaster double decker buses are back in service. Known as the Big Pink fleet, most of the buses are painted in vivid pink in support of breast cancer research and awareness. Nevertheless they do take on banner advertising -

Before the Big Pink scheme was adopted RML 2578 was completely covered with a blue restaurant ad. It has now had the top painted pink, retaining the blue below.
Although the buses retain their back doors, they have had new doors added on the right side to make entering and exiting safer.
[RML signifies the long wheelbases Routemaster variant]

For more on this bus see a previous posting from 2010:
