Interior view of Glasgow DS43, FYS348, looking towards the rear. The GCT "route plate" (running number) holder can be seen on the window pillar, and was also fixed on the offside of buses behind the driver's cab. Metal plates were used and eventually replaced by plastic ones until the practice was ceased . The route number was then painted on the back of the metal timetable board and was intended to be displayed by the driver on all journeys, to enable a timekeeper to identify each bus on the service, and its home garage.
