Monday 9th February 2009 ~ They Can't Manage Without 'Em
37564 passes Mount Pleasant as it leaves Wisbech on K1 08.39 to Lowestoft this morning. Note last weeks snow is still in evidence.
As suspected, today was pretty good for the vintage B10Ms. 20103 did K16 06.07 Lynn - Lowestoft, 09.25 Lowestoft - Peterborough & 13.48 return and was on time. 20104 did Y14 07.32 Yarmouth - Lowestoft, 08.25 Lowestoft - Peterborough, 12.48 return, 17.55 Lowestoft - P'bo and 22.18 back to Lynn, while 20109 was K4 07.29 Lynn - Peterborough, 08.48 Peterborough - Lowestoft, 13.25 return and 17.48 Peterboro' - Lynn. In addition Sam saw 20105 on K19, just fresh off MOT, he reports "20105 sounded like someone had put stones in the gearbox and the whole front of the bus (blind box ceiling etc) was rattling and wobbling quite badly! Most of the paint seems to have bubbled also". Oh dear ! Sam walso saw 20127, now an X1 rarity on the 878 contract and 20115/126 on shuttles along with 37568 (Y21). Rob Brooks saw K17 with 20351 departing Peterborough right time at 14.18 and 37572 was the following 14.48 (K18). Bruce saw 20106 in Lynn garage with 20505 seemingly repaired and ready for departure to Scotland on the forecourt. Geminis NOT seen today were 37566/74 only. 20353 was K3 but an unexpected absentee today was 20352 which is on MOT prep this week.
