It suddenly occurred to me the other day that there are no orange buses in Cardiff anymore. They used to be an iconic image for the city, I thought. London had its red buses, Cardiff had its orange ones. Now they are either an uninteresting green (Cardiff Bus) or bright red (Veolia), and plastooned* with hideous advertising.
Maybe orange is a more expensive colour to paint vehicles with?
Bit of a shame, really.
*plastooned. From JC's dictionary. Meaning plastered, covered or smeared over excessively.
