Nimbus Activity

Former Jersey Dart 43867 EG52FHC in action in Lowestoft yesterday. 
Some more pics of the Jersey exiles in action taken by our regular correspondent Grahame Bessey

The first shows First Dart /Caetano Nimbus 43867 EG52FHC in action in Lowestoft yesterday.

The former Connex Jersey J101733 is working on Lowestoft Town service 104 to the Fortress Estate

The second shows her long version sister 42358 EY05FYP on service 1 at Hopton during yesterday evening. The 34 seater started its journey at Lowestoft Bus Station and will complete it in Martham, a village some 10 miles north of Great Yarmouth

So far unreported on this blog is the entry into service of a sixth member in the shape of 43863 EG52FFK; leaving only 43864 EG52FGA of the Great Yarmouth contingent to leave the depot and start earning her keep

The appearance of these ex Jersey vehicles in this newly refreshed livery has been greeted with disdain by one time former Great Yarmouth resident Mick Capon

He comment on a previous post - 'As much as I dislike "Corporate Liveries", especially this one, I am of the opinion that if you're going to do it, do it right. Why is it that First can't make up it's mind where the local identity name will be placed? Some below the windows, some above. No doubt the former is to allow for adverts, but what's the betting that adverts will soon cover the latter? Perhaps your contacts at Caister Road can explain Roy.'

These two photos illustrate his concerns and his response being able to be viewed here. I welcome any comments any readers may have by emailing me at eastnorfolkbus@yahoo.com or by using the comment link below this blog entry

Meanwhile I would like to thank Grahame for his contribution
