Something else happened today which also involved Cardiff and Norwich, but I expect, even if you are not a fan of footie, you will have, by now, heard about it. Just a note for Brucie, on April 9th 2005 - the last time Norwich played Manchester United at Carrow Road, we won 2-0.
Anyway (you can tell nothing much happened on the X1 today can't you ?), many daytime services ran fairly late and in the case of the 14.10 from Peterborough (supposedly 37572) it hadn't appeared 20 minutes after its booked time through Walpole. Derek viewed an elephant at South Lynn at 14.10 'not in service', so may be this was 572 ? The 13.10 from Peterborough had 37573 taken off at King's Lynn for cleaning after a passenger was unwell and the service proceeded eastbound with 37574 departing only 5 late.
|37575 in more Bank Holiday sunshine taking the 09.00 Wisbech - Lowestoft past Bruce's today.|
Jamie Vendy writes "Hey G, I was just having thoughts about the recent arrival of four Gemini 2s to the Coastliner operated by Transdev and wonder why First never really tried to make a more iconic branding for the X1 Corridor. It would surely attract more people into using the X1 and even though Coastliner battles against the train service, it does well because of the way it is branded".
Now who says we are never controversial ? Here's a picture from JV of one of the Coastliner Geminis ..
