Following Konect's introduction of a new service to compete with Sanders Norwich to Cromer/Sheringham route, correspondent  Syd Eades thought he would give both of the services a try yesterday

He reports:-
'Despite the rain I ventured out today to experience the new Sanders/Konect services to Cromer and Sheringham. 

 I got a ride out to Cromer on one of the newly acquired Sanders Tridents, which actually carried route branding for the service 55, very clean and tidy inside but a bit faded seating.

 The return was on one of Konect's leather seated buses which as always exude class. 

The passenger loadings were very light on both journeys and other services observed appeared to fare little better, although it was dreadful weather. 

I was confused by a few sightings of Sanders buses working service 42s which

should be a peak hours only extenson of the 44A to and from Sheringham. 

I have provide a photo of one of the 44s buses, taken about 2 pm inbound at Magdalen Street Norwich as well as my steeds to and from Cromer......and thank goodness the tea shop was open opposite the bus station!!!'

My thanks to Syd Eade for his photos and report
