A Swift Visit

Javelin 136 SJI8127 beside the Southtown Road boundary
On passing Swift Taxis' Southtown yard on my way to Great Yarmouth on Wednesday lunchtime, I looked in to see what was about

Alongside the Southtown Road fence was Neoplan bodied Dennis Javelin SJI8127. She was acquired with the Amza of Blofield business in December 2009 and carries fleet number 136. She was previously registered as Y83LJO when new to Pearce of Berinsfield, Oxfordshire in May 2001 and still retains the Pearce stripes on her bodysides.

Clustered together were Dennis Javelin 111 P109WJO, Volvo B10M 114 N962DWJ and BMC Falcon 110 BX55OFN. The Javelin was obtained from Woodside Motors of Southey Green in July 2006 whilst National Holidays supplied DWJ a month later. The Falcon was new to Swift in February of that year

At the time of my visit, the Volvo was causing some grief to the driver by refusing to start and he told me that she had only just been serviced!

When I passed the site a half an hour later, she was absent; so I assume her engine did eventually burst into life

Parked up on the western boundary, accompanied by a couple of minibuses, was Mercedes Benz Vario/ Eurocoach (Bunbeg) 106 AE07NZC
