First Bus Recent Changes

As the dust begins to settle after the introduction of Enviro 200s into active service in Lowestoft, it seems very apt to review/summarise vehicle activity in the East Norfolk/East Suffolk coastal strip over the past month

As I was about to prepare this, I received a summary from Grahame Bessey also highlighting the recent changes and they are reproduced here

20115 has been acquired by a private buyer in Essex

20102 and 43453 have been sold to dealer Alpha Recovery of Weetslade, Northumberland. First Group are apparently no longer using Erith Commercials for disposing of vehicles.

On the positive side 20115 has been sold to a private buyer in Essex, who collected some spare parts for her from the Caister Road depot on Friday last

My appreciation goes to Grahame for the summary (saving me much work!) and to Ryan for the vehicle disposal information
