June 29th 2017 ~ Fleet Changes

Time for an update on the Enviro fleet. 33821 left King's Lynn on Monday evening for Yarmouth after arrival in service. It had been on long term loan.
33808 which was involved in the Storm Doris incident in February arrived back at King's Lynn at 16.30 today after collision damage repairs, it needs an MOT and safety service before it can re-enter traffic.
33817 has had some bodywork repairs and no longer has bodyside fleet numbers on the offside. 33816 now has larger fleet numbers following similar attention and one night in mid June both the last buses into King's Lynn from Peterborough and Norwich had altercations with muntjac  deer resulting in identical panels needing replacement. The picture below depicts 33817 & 33814 flanking 33804. This would make a good 'spot the difference' picture, the replacement panels on 33817/4 are obvious when highlighted.


Monday 26th June 2017 ~ Enterprise In Service

As we predicted, today was the first day in service for the latest demonstrator on the X1 route. The lack of air conditioning and wi-fi may be noticed by some passengers  I daresay but it seemed to do quite well today on diagram 6005 which commences with the 07.34 King's Lynn - Peterborough and finishes as the 15.45 Peterborough - Swaffham. Here are a few pictures of the new bus taken today :

Two views of the newcomer on the 09.05 Peterborough - Norwich at Terrington St. John this morning.
Now here's a strange picture, the demonstrator is seen from the upper deck of 33803 which had just replaced 33805 at King's Lynn garage on the 17.45 King's Lynn - Peterborough. Our photographer was just leaving the garage when the demo arrived back light from Swaffham after completing its first day in service on the route.
