Heritage Buses to Return

Following a posting on here on the 23rd April 2012, regarding service changes, it was noted that First Eastern Counties would be reintroducing a seasonal service in Great Yarmouth linking the holiday areas and the town centre.

It has now been revealed in a Norfolk County Council document that First's 3/3A services would be a circular route connecting Newport Caravan Park at Hemsby with Great Yarmouth's Seashore and Vauxhall Holiday Parks via the town centre.

The report continues by stating that it will be operated by two 'heritage' buses and two accessible buses providing alternate journeys.

First has two former London Transport Routemasters which are expected to form the heritage fleet; RML2480 (JJD480D) and RML2623 (NML623E).

Both are in London Red livery with the latter currently at Great Yarmouth's Caister Road depot undergoing an internal repaint.

The 3/3A services commence on the 2nd June 2012
