|Passengers enjoy the view from 37563 on the 10.10 Peterborough - Lowestoft this morning.
King's Lynn will operate separate services to Peterborough and Norwich, while Lowestoft will work a service to East Dereham. Is this the moment I've been waiting for - a chance to finish the X1 blog at last ? Well we will have to wait and see. It will almost certainly mean that coaches will no longer be seen on the western part of the route, but hey, you never know ;+)
I was thinking yesterday that it was a great shame that Lynn and Lowestoft were not allowed to keep one serviceable coach each. This would have prevented the situation where a surplus of vehicles end up at the wrong end of the route while coaches are still operating. Whilst we are on the subject of coaches, 20126 does a regular schools contract at the Yarmouth end, it is suitable because the former Scottish B10Ms have more seats (and less legroom) than the former Eastern Counties and Thamesway examples. When 126 is unavailable, 20115 sometimes get used but, the driver then hopes that a few kids are off sick so that everyone gets a seat !
|A new wiper motor was especially sent over from Lowestoft this afternoon and as a result 20107, seen here taking a well earned rest at King's Lynn garage, may well be on her travels again tomorrow.
|37579 looks rather imposing in this picture taken (with permission) at King's Lynn tonight. These later Geminis were certainly a good buy and seem to go on forever.
