Long Dart Debut

Long Dart 42358 EY05FYP on its first day in service
Grahame Bessey reports on the latest from Caister Road and highlights the debut of the long ex Jersey Dart 42358 EY05FYP today

He saw her chomping at the bit and ready to go in the doorway of the depot on his way in to work this morning.

Also of interest is that the Anglian vehicles now only carrying their new numbers.

My thanks to Grahame for the information and photo

  1. I'm trying hard not be critical, but . . . As much as I dislike "Corporate Liveries", especially this one, I am of the opinion that if you're going to do it, do it right. Why is it that First can't make up it's mind where the local identity name will be placed? Some below the windows, some above. No doubt the former is to allow for adverts, but what's the betting that adverts will soon cover the latter? Perhaps your contacts at Caister Road can explain Roy.

    I'm not critical of the blog - you know I love it - thanks.

    Just watched a video of Yarmouth in the 60s and 70s (when it was GREAT) and couldn't help compare (a) the number of buses on Marine Parade (and the amount of people too) and (b) the number of coaches at Beach Coach Station compared with the regular half dozen now.

    Keep up the good work.
