Tuesday Update

Beach Coach Station

Six coaches were present at Beach Coach Station during mid-afternoon.

They surprisingly included Reynolds of Caister's Mercedes W600JSB on a Norfolk County Council schools working!

As expected a Shearings vehicle was seen and it was in the form of Volvo B12M/ Transbus No 618 (MX04AEY)

St Ives - based Whippet employed Volvo B10M J670LGA on its Coastal Service.

Alfa Coaches of Chorley were using Volvo B12B/Plaxton Paragon 43 (PN07LLG) on its local tours.

The other vehicles were Blue Iris Coaches of Bristol's Berkhof YN06NZX and Harry Shaw of Coventry's VDL F5RST

Market Gates

All three recent Dart transfers from Ipswich were present at Market Gates this afternoon operating local services within minutes of each other.

43433 (P433NEX) is pictured on the 4 to Barrack Estate and was observed working on the 2 and 4 routes for most of the afternoon.

Correspondent Harry Stanley also confirmed this working

43435 (P435NEX) has already been photographed on local workings and its photo can be seen here.

The remaining one of 

the former Ipswich trio can be seen about to work the 15:45 service 1 to Lowestoft outside BHS in Regent Road.

Whilst I was there Shearings Setra S416GT-HD 309 (BK11GJY) dropped off some passengers.

Minutes later First Eastern Counties newly repaired and painted 37156 (AU07DXS) passed through on the X1 to Lowestoft.
