First Eastern Counties
Appropriately, first the departure of First Essex Olympian 34311 (L311PWR) to Chelmsford proceeded as planned this morning. What's more Syd Eade was on hand to photograph it outside Caister Road depot prior to its journey to Essex. She had a neat printed sticker on the front windscreen saying 1a LOWESTOFT
Meanwhile, at the rear of the depot this morning were three other Olympians. These were former Yorkshire Coastline vehicles which subsequently joined the First Eastern Counties fleet during 2009. They were 34108/12/3 (W435/2/3CWX) and are located where the withdrawn vehicles are normally kept. Their future appears bleak. 34113 is shown left at the rear of Caister Road depot this morning.
Finally,I would like to express my thanks to Syd Eade for the report and picture of First Essex Olympian 34311
