Great Yarmouth Blue Buses

Following David Bell's recent contribution to Andys Bus Blog, a few days ago, I thought I would dig up some of my own pictures of the undertaking during the early 1980s

First up is one of Bristol VR/ Eastern Coach Works 34 RVF34R at Theatre Plain in Great Yarmouth Town Centre during November 1982.

This was the last month services used Theatre Plain as a bus terminus with No 34 being pictured on the penultimate day on a service to the District Hospital (now the James Paget Hospital)

In the second photo, three vehicles are pictured on the east side of Market Place - then used as terminus for some services

Closest to the camera is AEC Swift/ECW 86 WEX686M on the service 18 to Girton Road on the Magdalen Estate.

Behind No 86 is Eastern Counties Leyland National LN625 UVF625X in an experimental livery returning to Wellington Road bus station on the 790 route. Lurking in the distance is a Caroline Seagull coach.

Again the photo is dated November 1982; shortly after, all services transferred to the new Market Gates bus terminus.
