More Metrobuses For AnglianBus

Paul Bennett visited both AnglianBus depots at Beccles and Rackheath yesterday where he noted four recent arrivals from Metrobus

The four red liveried Scania Omnicity buses had arrived in the last few days and the details are as follows:-

447 YN03WRF
448 YN03WRG
449 YN03WRJ
451 YN03WRP

With the exception of 448 (based at Rackheath), they join sister 450 YN03WRL at Beccles

It is thought that the newcomers will replace the Irizars currently on school contracts

Having said that Syd Eade saw both YN03WRJ and YN03WRL working on the 601A today.

Both were unhelpfully displaying 'Not In Service' but with paper stickers in the front windscreen.

He suggests that as one of them has a fleet number (incorrectly!) applied it may indicate a repaint not being on the cards for some time yet.

Meanwhile also at the Beccles Depot on Sunday were all five Irizar bodied Scanias:-

112 OW03LFK
113 OW03LFN
114 OW03LFP

As already mentioned on this blog the last two are not strictly fleet members.

My grateful thanks go to both Paul Bennett and Syd Eade for their reports and photographs
