Friday October 30th 2009 ~ Passing the Milestone

The last two B9 Geminis to pass the 100 thousand mile mark did so this week, these being Lowestoft's 37566 and King's Lynn's 37573. Just a reminder that at this stage last year there were only eight B9s in service and two of these were 566 & 573 !
There were two B7s out today, 37158 beginning the day on K17 and 37160 on K5. more back up was provided by 20103 on K2, 20104 on L10 and 20107 on L12. 20109 was down to work K15 this morning, but 37573 ended up on this turn and there is some doubt as to whether 109 worked at all.
37574 returned to action today following attention at Volvo and relieved 37158 on K17 enabling the B7 to return to local work. Late tonight 37576 on K18 was turned round at Yarmouth and came back to Lynn on the last leg of K19 with 37572 retiring to Yarmouth garage off K19.
Michael B reports 20115 being seen in Norwich, but, "it didn't appear to be doing anything". Michael also confirms that 37160 did complete its turn on Monday, so 37567 just magically appeared at King's Lynn on Tuesday morning - a bit early for Halloween.
Not many daytime services were seen today, but FST seemed to have gained a foothold early this afternoon when 37573 which had been 16 late at Walton Highway going west, was seen by Bruce 37 late returning. The previous turn, K14 was a mere 26 late coming back from Peterborough !
