    I've done the two main buses that aren't RCH 280R - that one I will leave for tomorrow as it's going to be significantly longer a page than the other two.

    If you're looking for a full list of stops, best bets are:

    - S/Sega Power
    - Sonic the Comic
    - Maybe Sega Pro

    I've definitely come across lists of tour dates... somewhere.

    The tour dates will probably have to go on their specific page as it will be difficult to know which buses went where (quite often more than one event is on at the same time).

    Trying to make sense of the liveries. Which liveries I've seen on which buses and when first seen;

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. 90 RCH280R                 Sega Challenge "Do me a favour ... Plug Me into a Sega"
    3. 91 RCH280R JOV750P         On the Road: Sonic the Hedgehog
    4. 92         JOV750P C648FTT On the Road (Graffiti logo)
    5. 93 RCH280R JOV750P C648FTT On the Road (Graffiti logo) + Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    6. 94 RCH280R         C648FTT in2 ACTION! tour + changable boards (Virtua Racing [C648FTT], Knuckles anti-smoking[RCH280R])
    7. 95                 C648FTT in2 ACTION! tour + changable boards (32X)
    8. 96 ???
    9. 97 ???
    10.  
    The big Sonics from the original "On the Road" livery remain when they put the graffiti logos on RCH280R & JOV750P, THE graffiti logo overlays the giant Sonic in places. C648FTT first shows up with the graffiti logo, and giant Sonic overlays the graffiti logo, which implies that this was the first livery for this bus, and thus the last bus to get added.

    Finished the main thrust of all 3 pages, added pretty much all the images and info we've found in this thread.

    As a random amusing note: I'm 95% sure this isn't just Google sending me customised pages, but searches for all three of these number plates now have the Sega Retro page as the top hit. They have existed for 4 days. =P

    Details about Bus Number 2, as it seems to be called here, and the livery changes in the summer of '91.
