Routemaster 2.0 ~ Return of Iconic British Bus!

FT's Bob Sherwood writes London mayor shows Routemaster bus...
"A full-size mock-up of the design revealed the same open rear platform that allows passengers to hop on and off and an interior decor inspired by the old Routemasters. But for all the nostalgia, the latest London bus displays more modern sweeping lines, two staircases, three entrances and panoramic windows, and it will have more fuel-efficient engines. Routemasters, one of the quintessential international images of London, have not been seen in general service on the capital’s roads for almost five years."
Lovely reimagination of an iconic design!
