Presidents Replaced on X2

The Volvo B7s/Plaxton Presidents acquired from London have not been a success on the X2 Lowestoft-Norwich service with reliability being poor. 

So on the evening of Friday 2nd December five of them were replaced with ALX400s 32651/2/4/5/6(AU05MUO/P/W/Y/VA). Presidents 32212/3/4 (LT52WTV/W/X) went direct to Norwich and 32207/8 (LT52WTN/O) should now be at Great Yarmouth's Caister Road allowing the shorter length 32100/101 (LT02ZCJ/K) to return to Norwich.

The ALX 400s were out on the X2 on Saturday (the 3rd), but of course one just had to put in a first day appearance on town services!  So above is a photo of 32652 at Carlton Colville on the normally Dart operated service 103

My thanks to regular contributor Syd Eade for the information and to James Race for the photograph.
