Friday November 28th 2014 ~ All Mod Cons for Bernie

When is an X1 NOT an X1 ? Well the answer to this strange question is "when it's a Bernard Matthews Contract".
First have long been responsible for the running of BM contracts east of Norwich, but although often rumoured in recent years, King's Lynn have not been involved - until now that is.
In the early hours of tomorrow (Saturday 29th) a big blue Enviro 400 will creep out of King's Lynn garage - even before the X1 fleet are being prepared for another hectic day. The bus will then go light to Fakenham to do its BM deeds before returning to Lynn in time to be X1 reserve for the day.
The contract is only for the Christmas period I believe and I will bring you more details as I receive them.
