#TBT ~ Eastern Counties AVF579B

The Eastern Counties double decker theme continues with this week's offering. But before we get to that I can update you a little on last week's feature on BNG886B as Syd Eade offers a  more recent photo taken in Belgium during August 2014 This can be seen in the original post ( #TBT ~ Eastern Counties BNG886B). My thanks Syd.

This week we see another Eastern Coach Works bodied Bristol FS5G AVF579B. It was new to Eastern Counties in May 1964 as LFS79 and after being based at Cromer for a short period it became a Norwich based bus. It is seen here at a very quiet Castle Meadow in 1980. Withdrawal came in July 1981.

AVF579B was then sold to dealer APT of Bracebridge Heath; finally meeting its end after scrapping by breaker PVS of Carlton during May 1982
