Lothian Buses introduced the X50 express service between Edinburgh City Centre and the original Britannia Visitors Centre at Leith using 433 (P433 KSX) one of its 3 coach seated Alexander Royale Volvo Olympians based at Central Garage in a dedicated livery. On the opening of Ocean Terminal, and the resiting of the Britannia, high frequency service 22 negated the need for the express bus service and 433 migrated to Longstone Depot where it lost its chrome wheel trims and operated principally on route 35 between Sighthill and Ocean Terminal.  The bus was painted back into fleet colours in 2005. This is the actual vehicle and livery as represented by Creative Master Northcord Ltd model UKBUS4007
