Following the re-introduction of First's seasonal route 3/3A from Saturday 2nd June, there would be an opportunity to photograph one of First Eastern Counties Routemaster in active service once more.
While I was in Norwich for most of Saturday, Harry Stanley was watching out for any appearance but all he saw on the route was Volvo Olympian 34109 (W436CWX) and Volvo B7TL 32204 (LT52WTK)
After spending all Sunday involved in the Jubilee celebrations, I was determined to observe the 3/3A route for myself on Monday.
Continuing my drive to Caister Road, I saw a Routemaster parked just inside First's bus garage but showing no signs of movement; so I returned to North Drive to photo the Olympian on its return journey
However, unbeknown to me the vehicles had swapped over; so I got my picture of a Routemaster in service on the 3 after all! RML2480 (JJD480D) is pictured in rare sunshine!
