Thanks to a friendly supervisor at First, we were able to enjoy the day without worrying about what was on the X1, having been furnished with a full list of the vehicles out in our absence.
We met Des, Andy, Richard, Terence and Michael B at various points during the day and here are a few pictures from the show :
|YIL3196 (ex N133SJF), one of two Emblings B10Ms on show|
|RPU869M in Eastline livery must have been an X1 route performer at one time. Follow this link to see her at Ipswich in a 1983 photo by John Law|
|OVF 229 appears in the blog again, this time someone had kindly blinded her up for the 336 King's Lynn to Peterborough !|
