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.

A Blast from the Past
Going back to the days prior to the 794, X94 and X1. the King's Lynn to Norwich service buses ran as 34, 34a and 34b depending on the route. Syd Eade who supplied this nostalgic image says "I thought you may like this shot of LFS114 on which I had just travelled from Kings Lynn to Norwich in January 1973. It was a Sunday so was a 34B which I recall means it diverted via Yaxham and Mattishall between Dereham and Norwich, it was while ago after all. Anyway just a line to wish you and the blog a very happy Christmas and best wishes for 2011".
Thanks very much Syd and just to add that LFS114 was a bus I travelled on many times between 1969 and 1974.
