|Grahame Bessey photographed 33805 at Gorleston's James Paget Hospital
As reported on the X1 blog, their first day of service was on Monday 30th September with 33805 leaving Kings Lynn for Lowestoft and 33809 heading in the other direction to Peterborough.
I do not intend to report the subsequent X1 activity here but refer you to Gerrard's excellent daily reports on his X1 blog with some of his accompanying photos taken in the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft area
No doubt many local enthusiasts have been out and about with their cameras snapping the new arrivals in service. One such person was regular contributor Grahame Bessey who caught 33805 YX63LJK heading for Peterborough at the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston on the first day of October
My thanks to Grahame for the picture - I'm now off out to get the first ones of my own!
