No sooner has Norwich got its buses branded for the new city services (which haven't started yet!) then one escapes the 'fine city' to appear on Lowestoft Town services.

Green Line branded 66346 MV02VCZ replaced a broken down Dart SLF on the X2 2020 hrs from Norwich last night.

It was reported by John Podgorski on the East Anglia Buses Yahoo Group that Lowestoft SLF 43435 P435 NEX was seen in a broken down state on Bracondale in Norwich whilst working the X2.

On arrival at Lowestoft's Gordon Road the driver decided not to change his bus due to the late running of  the X2 because of the breakdown.

This resulted in 66346 continuing the Dart's scheduled duties with the 2135 hrs service 102 and 2215 hrs service 103

This is the first time one of these newly branded buses has left Norwich on another working and also the first use of a B7L in Lowestoft. It certainly is a big vehicle to take on town services at night

Syd also recorded 66346 on town services this morning. She is pictured here by Syd operating the 105 service to the Rock Estate

My thanks to Syd Eade for the report and photo plus James Race for the night photo
