Sunday 1st February 2009 ~ Gone with the wind

Discovered tonight that four Glasgow drivers flew in to Norwich Airport on Friday morning whence they were taxied to Lynn to fetch 20505/6, 20121 & 20141. In the event 20505 had to be left behind as it had a problem with its gears. It was at a snowy Rowan Road tonight and is the last remaining coach due for transfer. On a related note Jamie V sent a web link to photos of reliveried 20500/1 now branded for the X22 Colchester - Stansted service, this made me smile as despite the new livery, the fleet numbers are in different positions ! :

Seen in service today were Geminis 37565/70/72/76. At Rowan Road were 20106/9/18, 20352, 20505, 37574 and 37577 while in Vancouver Avenue were 20105 (MOT), 20353, 37567/8/78.

Hi Gerard
By my calculations this leaves 20120/3/4 of the B10Ms left to transfer?

Hi Sam,

Yes would agree there. I gave the misleading impression everything had now gone. 505 is the only remaining vehicle at Lynn. 120 has gone, but I don't know where. Will try to find out. 123 still at Yarmouth, 124 presumed still at LFT.

Will ask at Lowestoft for you

Hello Gerard,
Yarmouth have 4 (possibly 5) Premieres - P766 XHS, 2 Barbie 2 liveried and an un-identified one when I went up there on Sunday. Also, saw 37571/9 in service on Sunday. 20505 is the last B12B/M waiting to depart. Anyone heard of what has happened to 20122? Will check what is at Lowestoft on Tuesday.
