Grahame's Norwich Visit

Regular contributor Grahame Bessey paid a visit to Norwich city centre on Tuesday (3rd July)

He saw at least three of the recent transferred Volvo B7L/ Wright Eclipses from First Northampton to First Eastern Counties

The first photo shows 61148 (MV02VBU) at Castle Meadow on city service 28 to Thorpe Marriott

Sister vehicle 66342 (MV02VCU) was also noted in Castle Meadow on a Costessey Queens Hills working.

A third example was noted by Grahame at Norwich Bus Station off Surrey Street - 66336 (MV02VCC) was the vehicle in question.

Another interesting sighting was that of Anglianbus Dennis Javelin 109 (CSK282) complete with Plaxton Derwent bodywork

The Javelin previously carried the registration J127LHC and took the cherished plate on the demise of a Mercedes Benz O303.

CSK282 is pictured on St Stephen's Street not in service - presumably it had worked a schools duty.

The final photo is that of Sanders 33 seater Scania L94UB/ Wright Axcess-Floline T362JWA.

Numbered 311 in the Sanders fleet, it seen in Castle Meadow on the X44 from the North Norfolk coast.

T362JWA was new to Apcoa of Sunbury on Thames in May 1999.

My thanks to Grahame Bessey for providing the good quality photos.
