Monday 1st August 2011 ~ Banished

So another new month dawns without sight of a B10M Premiere on the X1. The last such working (excluding the Gorleston - Norwich shuttles) was 20126 on 15th June. Yes July passed without any coaches working save the borrowed 20352. This was back on K3 today, though surely its loan must be nearing an end with 37577 now back on the road ?
One thing I forgot to mention was Rob Brooks identifying the mystery Excel coach seen at Shoebridge's in Wisbech, it was not a First Eastern example. I'll confirm its identity with Rob and let you all know, having succeeded in losing his original text !
Bruce was blogger in chief again today, providing a full list of sightings and nearly all punctual. His main query concerned the non-appearance of 37565/6/7. Well this was because 567 is on MOT prep and the other two were involved in the Volvo gearbox modification programme.
Grahame Bessey noted 37577 departing Lowestoft on L12 this morning and points out something I forgot to mention, this being that it is now minus 'First' logos on the front and is therefore easy to spot from a distance. 37159 is also in this condition, but in B7 livery of course. Malcolm noted 37157 on K5 arriving 9 late into Lowestoft this afternoon and a comprehensive list of weekend sightings too, helping me piece things together. Des reports 34109 on the 08.52 Yarmouth - Norwich shuttle & 09.40 return.
