Fun train application

Locomotive Scotland Ltd have applied for permission to operate a fun train in central Edinburgh providing opposition to the traditional tour buses. The application is based on vehicles built around the conventional chassis of the Suzuki Grand Vitara, Mercedes G and Nissan Patrol - which will tow carriages with passengers.

Consideration is likely to be given at the Council's Regulatory Committee meeting on 6th March.
