Four other passengers boarded in Norwich and incidentally from Sun 26/09/10, X1 now stops at The Showground, an old X94 stop, and Eaton Road in Norwich. We've just passed Eaton Road and the bus shelters now say 'Newmarket Road Interchange' in large letters. A quick Google of 'Eaton Road Interchange' reveals all? For Gerard's records we pass :
K14 37567 - On time, exiting Hockering.
K15 37574 - On time, Dereham market
K16 37568 - 07:15, entering Hillcrest Ave Dereham.
K17 37571 ~ 07:30, Swaff Mac D's roundabout
K18 37578 ~ 07:48, West Bilney church.
K19 37570 ~ On time exiting K/L bus station.
K1 37565 ~ On time.
Thanks to Des for that and he actually made the move pf perfect balance by using the 20.35 Lynn to Lowestoft later on which is Y6, still with 37576 !
I notice that the X1 timetable has completely disappeared from the First website at the moment. Radio Norfolk made a great fuss about the new timetables in operation in Norwich yesterday - mainly caused by the public's inability to understand the words 'new' and 'timetable' by all accounts. The Eastern Daily Press on the other hand made no mention of the confusion - well not in the Fenland edition anyway. Still it would be good if the X1 service could be reinstated to the website I would have thought ?
Back to today and L8 10.35 from Peterborough with 37573 took the signposted diversion around the Wisbech roadworks today traversing Town Bridge and Freedom Bridge. It was another good day for punctuality with only 37570 on the peaktime K19 being seen out of path departing Wisbech 14 late eastbound at 17.10.
Bruce had to go to Lynn hospital this afternoon and enjoyed (?) 37158 on L11 and 37572 on K5, but, he was very excited on departing Lynn at 17.15 when viewing outside Vancouver Avenue B10M coach 20121 which had been sent over from Yarmouth - apparently for X1 use tomorrow. I think this could have something to do with some Lynn elephants requiring Tacho and fuel gauge adjustments. So just when we thought 121 had done its last X1, turns out we could be wrong.
|There goes that cold coach again ! The Beast leaves Wisbech on the 13.56 to Lowestoft today.|
