Spratt's Loanee

Another regular contributor has contacted me regarding changes at Norfolk operator Spratt's of Wreningham. Kevan Portas informs me that the business is currently in the process of updating its fleet with some vehicles being sold

 To tide Spratt's over until replacements arrive, they have hired this Bedford YNT from one of their own drivers Simon More who is based at Rollesby. Simon is using the vehicle himself on route 7 in and out of Stalham's High and Middle Schools.

A400NNK may be familiar to some of the locals as it was originally owned by Kenninghall based Turner and Butcher, which ceased trading after the brothers took retirement early last year. New to Trincia of London WC2 in October 1983, it more recently saw use with Norfolk Coachways

My thanks to Kevan for the photo which was taken with Simon's permission



  1. A400 NNK was owned and operated by Spratts at an earlier stage of its career.

    Spratts also have long term leased Sidelines Bedford SB3(5) Duple Super Vega WLO 685. They still retain out of use their own Bedford YLQ Duple C45F NRY 22W.

  2. Thanks for the additional information Andrew. WLO685 featured on the blog on Friday last which can be viewed at http://eastnorfolkbus.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/zeus-wearn-emailed-me-yesterday-to-tell.html
