Good Friday Round Up

With a little spare time on my hands I thought I would whizz around the usual locations to see if there were any rare workings/visitors to be found. Here's a resume of what I saw.

Beach Coach Station

Only four independents at the coach station when I visited at around 4 pm.

S Barnard of Kirton Lindsay, 686XUB, 

KM Travel of South Yorkshire ER11ZAR,

Crawley Luxury Travel of Sussex 784CLC,

Gee-Vee Travel of Barnsley GT11GVT
- regular visitor to the town.

First - Caister Road

Not much happening at the front of the depot so I thought I would view the rear yard. Unlike the last time I visited, it looked completely full!

Nearest to the fence was recently withdrawn Volvo B10M/ Plaxton Premier 20126 (P766XHS) - still looking in reasonable nick (bodywork wise). Next to her was decker 34113 (W433CWX)

Also parked opposite 20126 were two other driver trainer sisters  - the one nearest the fence was 20109 (N609APU). The second was later identified as 20128

Two Darts were situated next to her but I initially couldn't identify them. However, crossing the road I was surprised to see their rear registrations over the top of the high wall.

I double checked them to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me but they were P433NEX and P435NEX - both Ipswich vehicles on the last allocation list! It's not known if they are on loan or have been transferred.

Swift - Southtown Yard

Ten vehicles noted.

I took two photos which I have merged into one showing eight of them.

An unexpected interesting half hour touring around the usual haunts!
