Another Visit to Bury St Edmunds

Stephensons Dart SLF 455 EG02NZD at the ARC shopping centre on
St Andrews Street South
Saturday saw a return visit to Bury St Edmunds and, while the other half was shopping, I spent an hour or so watching bus activity in the town

I first headed for the bus station, where I saw Stephensons' decker YN55NHB laying over between duties. The Scania N94UD was new to London United in September 2005 as their fleet number SL8

Another Stephensons'
Mulleys MUI7924 passing Bury St Edmunds Library on St Andrews Street North
vehicle of interest was Dennis Dart SLF 455 EG02NZD. She was first registered with Bus Eireann as 02-C-20217 in September 2002 and was sold to Soul of Olney exactly eight years later.

Ixworth based Mulleys were employing two former Anglian Bus Wright Axcess-Ultralow bodied Scania L113CRLs in the form of MUI7919 (R84EMB) and MUI7924 (R85EMB) on local
Stagecoach East 22323 AE51RYZ ready to work the next Cambridge service

Another from the Go Ahead Group in service, but with Chambers, was former Konect V307LGC currently with Chambers as L419.

A second Chambers decker seen was ex Stagecoach London Volvo B7TL/ Plaxton President W956WGH - now L438

Galloway Dart SLF R80PSW passes the bus station on her way to Stowmarket
on Cambridge services were 22323 AE51RYZ and 22328 AE51RZC

Coach Services recent addition Enviro200 SN63NBB was observed heading to Thetford. She was new to Coach Services in September

Also making an appearance was Galloways Dennis Dart SLF 308 R80PSW (ex R295RAU) which was Stowmarket bound on the 385 service

As always a wide variety of vehicles from six different operators continues to provide interest
