The SLE's on the 267 have had 'Fulwell Bus Garage' as a desto for years with no problem. I don't get the 'accessibility' thing - if it's in capitals or lower case, does it really matter? If they wanted to end this 'banditry' they could just go for LED's which could show via points (I know that is part of the accessibility requirements, which TfL doesn't adhere to)
Talking of 267's, TLA4 was out on the route yesterday, with the rear blind set to 391
Egh! LED blinds look ugly! And they're not always clear enough to read (well not for me at least).
the one I saw on United Transit's VLP in Hanworth today had a nice white on black LED set, clear to see in the sun as well. I think it had been on rugby shuttle work but I could be wrong

I used to think it was a load of nonsense but have changed my mind: the idea is that someone with poor vision or problems with reading can make out the shape of a word. For instance, take 'ORPINGTON' in upper case - all the letters are the same height on one line. In lower case, 'Orpington' is a more distinctive shape: the letters vary in height, there's a dot on the 'i', the 'p' and 'g' have descenders and so on. Think how hard it can be to read when people post on forums in upper case. I was only convinced when I realised I found new style blinds easier to read from a distance because I could pick out the shape of a word from further away.
Could you just give up already...it will never happen.
It will happen.... Just need a change or 2 within TfL management. It's a matter of time... How much time is the only question.
I understand the point you're making but you are underestimating the political aspect and the disabled persons lobby that will exert pressure on TfL. There were loads of questions about the change to white on black blinds . I suspect any move to displays which are considered to be less readable than a conventional blind will run in to all sorts of opposition. There is also the cost of conversion as it would take far too long to achieve just through new vehicle purchases. I appreciate some will argue about avoiding the cost of replacing / updating conventional blinds but you are still talking about a very considerable expense and conversion programme which will cost a lot of money when funds could be used for other purposes.
What enthusiasts think is pretty irrelevant to any future change.
 if there is a change in political control at City Hall I'd not be shocked to see an edict issued to force TfL to revert to yellow on black blinds and to halt white on black blind changes.
