This is the unofficial blog for the Lowestoft to Peterborough X1 bus service operated by First Group.
Originally reporting the introduction of the 'Gemini' double deckers and the phasing out of coaches, the blog is now incredibly in its sixth year and a £5 million fleet of 22 Enviro 400 luxury buses now work the service.

Wednesday 24th March 2010 ~ A Wootton Ride
At one time in the not too distant past, the old K6 turn (08.00 King's Lynn - Peterborough) was booked to do a 43 to North Wootton before it. I don't think this happeed for long, but this afternoon, 37575 on K5 didn't do its allocated turn at 16.15 to Peterborough and instead ended up on the 17.15 Service 43, see picture above from Andy James. Whether 37578 (which had earlier been removed from K15, with 37158 going forward to Peterborough at 12.45) did the 16.15 is unclear, but there weren't any other suitable candidates.
With 37563 being absent again and 37157 spare at Lowestoft, it came as a bit of a surprise to find L10 with 20107. The B7 was used on the X2 though being noted on departures from Lowestoft at 07.08, 10.38 and 13.38.
37564 managed a full turn today and was marginally early departing as the 15.48 Wisbech to Peterborough (K1).
Punctuality was pretty good again today with 37562 on K16 being the heaviest delay at 17 minutes late on the 14.18 Wisbech - Peterborough.
