Monday 8th September 2008 ~ A Pattern Emerges
20124 & 20126 at Lynn garage this evening after arrival on K19 & Y21, 126 is in a non-standard paint scheme.
Although the situation remains somewhat fluid, a pattern seems to be emerging. Diagrams K3 & K17 were once again Profiles today (20351 & 20352) - see previous blogs for service details - whereas previously they had been B12 turns, this then leaves two of the latter spare and one of these does K16 which works 06.07 Lynn - Lowestoft, 09.25 L-P and 13.48 return finishing at Lowestoft, formerly a B10 turn whilst the other does one of the turns which finishes at Yarmouth/Lowestoft indiscriminately chosen from turns K1, K2, K6 and K18.
Once again 20105/118/131 all remained at King's Lynn and did schools contracts this afternoon. Timekeeping was good today, only two turns seemed to run late, these being J11 11.18 ex Peterborough which was 13 late at Wisbech and L13 16.55 ex Lowestoft which was late by the same margin. At 15.05, 20142 on K5 15.01 Wisbech - Peterborough and 20352 on K17 14.18 ex P'bo were both queueing at Wisbech town bridge traffic lights dead on time - an almost unheard of occurrence for these two services. Something of a surprise was Yarmouth's 20126 standing in for a regular coach on Y21 17.25 Lowestoft - Lynn, 20114 had been expected. Michael reports B10 useage on the X2 as a rare occurrence since the arrival of the three dedicated buses last week, the latter have all been out every day (except Sunday) and only K19 turn worked off King's Lynn remains a daily duty for a B10.
One swap at Lowestoft today, 20504 on K4, the 13.10 arrival, was changed for 20121 on the 13.25 to Peterborough.
Replacement low floor deckers are expected at Lynn from next week for use on the Hunstanton service I am told.
