First Essex Olympians 34310/34311 (L310/1PWR)

The two First Essex Olympians, borrowed to provide cover for the Great Yarmouth's B7's used on the Lowestoft Airshow park and rides, have (or are to) return home soon.

However, correspondent Syd Eade managed to capture one of them (34310) on Caister Road on service 3 between Hemsby Beach and Market Gates before it left. Note the use of the paper sticker 3 as there was no suitable destination to be found.

He also caught 34310 on Sunday leaving Caister Road depot for her return ourney south displaying the unlikely destination of  'Stanford-le-Hope 200'! L310PWR is now at Chelmsford where she is to be used on the V Festival Shuttles next weekend. It is understood that she will later find employment on school work being based at Basildon.

The other Olympian, 34311, is expected to travel south tomorrow morning also to Essex county town of Chelmsford.

As always I am grateful to Syd for the information and photographs - the latter are his copyright.
