Thursday 11th November 2010 ~ Unlucky Thirteen

Only 13 out of the 17 B9s were in service on the X1 today, leaving 6 turns to be covered by other buses. 37564 was out on the 14.08 Lowestoft to Norwich X2 and 37568 was at Lowestoft for servicing. Various afflictions continue to dog 37566 which was failed in the early hours with a fuel supply fault and this was towed away to Volvo this morning (see picture) where it was quickly repaired in time for it to return to Yarmouth and do the 6B/881/X1 (17:25 ex Lowestoft) sequence. 37573 was under repair at King's Lynn.

The shortfall was covered by 37156/7/9 and 20107 on K2,  20121 on K3 and 34108 on Y13. This meant two consecutive turns were coach operated. 37567 returned to X1 use yesterday and worked K1 today.
Punctuality was hit and miss today with 37569 on L11 being 14 late westbound this morning. 37563 in contrast was 3 early from Wisbech on the 12.48 to Peterborough. 37565 on L8 lost 12 minutes while covering Wisbech to Peterborough and back. 37157 on Y9 was 7 late from Wisbech at 10.25 and didn't come back, so probably got delayed and went empty back to Lynn from Peterborough.
