The first updated E.F.E. Routemaster release with new panel rib detail will be WLT 900, depicted in the ownership of Clydeside Scottish in the late 1980s. The deregulation of UK bus services in 1986 coincided with large scale withdrawals of short Routemaster RM-types in London. Many RMs saw further service across the UK, with several of the newly formed Scottish bus companies taking advantage of well-maintained, traditional open-platform crew-operated buses.

Long Routemaster WLT 900, new in 1961, had been earmarked for scrap by London Transport following a heavy collision. Deemed beyond economic repair by LT, Clydeside bought the bus and rebuilt it, re-entering service in Glasgow in June 1988. At the time it was well known as the the only RML-type in service outside London. Clydeside’s red and yellow livery on WLT 900 also included a large area of white and featured a popular Scots carton character. In 1995 the vehicle was acquired by the East London bus operator Blue Triangle and restored to original 1961 LT condition. Passing to the London Bus Company in 2007, it is still used on charter hire work today.
