Lowestoft Airshow Park & Ride - Day 2

Day 2 (Friday) saw the continuation of the First Eastern Counties operation of the Park and Ride services

Today I was able to observe and photograph some of the workings myself. The A1 from Dip Farm again employed Volvo B7TLs 32101/106/107 (the latter shown above exiting Dip Farm) with 32212 joining in the fray (shown below)

Correspondent Syd Eade saw Dart 42451 (R451CCV) on a teatime service to Dip Farm and kindly provides a photo of the working. She was the only SLF to appear on the A1 service.

Syd also reported that the A2 from Kessingland was using Volvo B7TLs 32201/203/205/213/654 which managed to cope with the crowds without any need for extra vehicles. The last mentioned was a surprise substitution and is pictured by Syd here.

Both Syd and I saw no sign of either of the two First Essex Olympians on services today, although it was later reported that they had seen use on service 3 in Great Yarmouth during the two days of the airshow.

Finally, my thanks to Syd for providing the photos and reports for this year's Airshow Park and Ride workings.
