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.

Friday May 27th 2011 ~ Doubles All Round !
37566 with a full load on Y9 10.18 Wisbech - Peterborough today
An all low floor service resumed today but by the end of the day things were once again precarious. Considering it was a Friday before a Bank Holiday weekend, timekeeping was fair. Services ran around 10 late on average this afternoon. Y6 changed vehicles at Lowestoft with 37159 being replaced by 37569 for the 14.25 to Peterborough. Later K1 with 37563 was in trouble, the B9 misfiring. The 18.02 Lynn to Lowestoft was then taken by 37564 which had just terminated on Y7. 37158 was spare at Lynn today and 20352 was undergoing inspection.
