On arrival at Market Gates, I was met by what appeared to be an abandoned Setra oustside the Troll Cart public house. It was EDZ114 of Norwich-based Avanti Coaches and minutes later I saw one of Chenery's coaches (NBU707) arrive with a fitter/driver (?) who immediately set to work on it.
I then visited Beach Coach Station where Shearings Setra 109 (BK09RNF) was enjoying the wintry sun in Grand Tourer livery!
Next a walk to the seafont and I passed two coaches outside the Raynscourt Hotel on Marine Parade; Abbey Travel of Hull's YIL3202 and A11WEY of Allways of Isle of Sheppey, Kent.
The coach layby near the Britannia Pier was occupied by Smith of Blofield's Setra S1WDA - thought to be on a schools trip to the Marina Centre.
Looking northwards along North Drive I again saw Chenery's NBU707 in the far distance outside the Burlingham Hotel. Retracing my steps towards the Hollywood Cinema I was passed by another Shearings Volvo B12, this time it was 640 (MX03ACZ)
I then returned to Market Gates Bus Station for the journey home and saw First Eastern Counties Volvo B10/Plaxton Premier 20126 (P766XHS) being readied for its next duty following contract work.
