FEC Great Yarmouth Update

Regular correspondent Grahame Bessey has provided an update on First Eastern Counties operations at Great Yarmouth's Caister Road depot.

Three Dennis Darts have been withdrawn having given some fifteen years service. They are
43434 (P434NEX)     43437 (P437NEX)    43447 (P447NEX)
(Subsequent update - 43434 has now moved to Lowestoft for reuse!)

Another Dart, 42445 (P445TCV), has been withdrawn at Lowestoft and sent to Great Yarmouth for storage. However, it has subsequently been reinstated for further use at Great Yarmouth until August!

Two Great Yarmouth Volvo B10BLEs have been transferred to First Essex as of yesterday (13th June) - 66177 (W377EOW) and 66179 (W379EOW)

After some time languishing at the rear of the depot, there has been some activity regarding the Leyland Olympian Triaxles. Erith Commercials of Dartford, Kent had taken 30104 (K488EUX) for scrap earlier today with 30098 (K482EUX) and 30100 (K485EUX) following tomorrow.

Routemaster RML 39623 (NML623E) has been repainted in London Red, having previously been in Flying Banana livery.

My thanks to Grahame for the information
