Eastern Scottish AA215G, GSG215D, was a Bristol FLF6G with ECW H44/32F bodywork new in October 1966. It was one of a batch of 25 longer FLFs with forward-ascending staircases which were delivered to Eastern Scottish during October and November of 1966. The whole batch were withdrawn between November 1980 and December 1981 with AA215G going in September 1981.
With the exception of 4 buses which spent the last 15 months of their lives at Bathgate (B) depot, the batch spent their entire working lives at Dalkeith (G) depot. Although they sometimes appeared on services such as Penicuik to Musselburgh they were mainly to be found on the busy services between Edinburgh and the mining villages south and south-west of Dalkeith such as Arniston, Birkenside and Rosewell. When these buses were delivered this group of services combined provided a bus roughly every four minutes between Edinburgh and Dalkeith on Saturday afternoons with even the weekday evening service running 10 times per hour!
