London's Newest Routemasters

Those of us who have run a few simulated buses on the left side of the street will be familiar with the "Routemaster" name, and boy are these pretty:

I have yet to see one, but there's been quite a lot in the press about them. I considered making one when I first did the buses (they were on the drawing board back then), but they still hadn't chosen a final design so I left it. I might have to rectify that soon. I've got a feeling this year might see a number of London themed additions, especially with the olympics coming up...

I rather like that idea...

In fact, since London hosted the olympics in 1908, 1948, and now 2012, there could be an evolving series of olympic themed attractions.
