The original London Transport Sightseeing Tour bus, now in 6-wide minifig scale.
About this creation
It's finally here - my very own rendition of the bus which made London famous (or is it vice versa? Anyway...)
Spacious just like its original counterpart, this one has a total of 5 seats, however people could also opt to remain standing (and get a better feel of just how well the streets of LEGO London have been maintained).
What would a Routemaster be without its stairs? This one features floor covering which should prevent you from slipping while bravely making your way up or down the stairs.
All aboard, and that includes you too, mad professor guy... Can't quite make up your mind whether you should hurry up and take that nice free seat downstairs or go up for that unique hairdryer treatment, eh?
Today we have a very special guest on our Sightseeing Tour, ladies and gentlemen... An Indigo Islander who's flown all the way from... eh, his island... to dig up the treasure that's buried in the heart of London. That is, unless he needs to be hospitalized first after witnessing the local traffic.
Excuse the door handle in the background. But I feel it just adds to that London feel of this creation... doesn't it?
The great outdoors - and the even greater upstairs. Just make sure you don't lean over the railings too much.

I really like this bus, I think I'll build it!
I like it because it's built without special pieces, but it still looks fine and is in the same scale of cars of 80s-90s.
Thanks Fofo, this means a lot to me :) Yours and J M's versions are still much better, but then again they're 8-wide, so you were both able to pack more details. 8-wide would however have looked waaay too big for the streets of my town. Oh, and sorry for the "windowless" design, but I just don't have any of those red window parts :/
Very sweet replica of the greatest Bus ever! yeah, finally it's done, and it's done just fine, great edition for your town collection and for my group as well ;) keep on the great work.. friends >>> peace.. Fofo
