A last look at LT1 before it enters service.

In this photo LT1 shows the other destination panel on the 'launch' set
which featured on Wrightbus' Christmas Card in 2011

Exclusively here for my readers is a unique photograph of the first prototype New Bus for London LT1 after its London launch alongside its predecessor the Engineering Test Vehicle. The latter has been at Millbrook for testing since the Spring and has now been joined by LT1 for its own testing prior to its entry into service at the end of February on route 38.

Testing continues to go extremely well and the vehicles are delivering exceptional fuel economy and lower emissions than we had expected.

Delivery of LT2 is imminent and the entire prototype fleet will be in service by Spring.



  1. Will the engineering test vehicle be rebuilt as a passenger carrying vehicle when its testing is complete please?

  2. It would have been nice to have any the following reg nos, with LT12 and LT62 where needed for the first buses.

    LT61 SLT, LT61 VLT, LT61 WLT, LT61 BXL, LT61 CLT, LT61 DYE
    LT61 ALD, LT61 ALM, LT61 CUV, LT61 JJD, LT61 NML, LT61 SMK

  3. I understand that the launch on route 38 scheduled for Monday 20 Feb has been deferred a week
    Why no official announcement on either your blog or the TFL website?
