Tuesday 16th March 2010 ~ Quick blog

For the first time for over a month (excepting Sundays) , the X1 was an entirely low floor service today. The full fleet of B9s & Gemini B7s were used apart from 37568 (accident damage) and 37159 on King's Lynn local services. There was even room for 37156 on the 12.08 X2 from Lowestoft, but later it replaced 37565 on Y9, the latter requiring scheduled maintenance. With the continuing absence of 37571, this will now be regarded as permanently replaced by 37562, thus giving a working fleet of 37562 - 570, 37572 - 9 & 37156 - 37160.
Pictured left is B7 37157 departing Wisbech as the 13.56 to Lowestoft (Y13). This has yet another new advert for the film 'Nanny McPhee & The Big Bang'.

More interesting was Sam's report from Norwich bus station : " 20115 dumped here so is still going (maybe?) showing 901 blank on screen. THE BEAST been nicked by Yarmouth and was on 878/X1 shorts".  Ah we wondered what they had been using it on.
