Chris from First informs me that, of the nine Geminis now being allocated to Lowestoft, only six of them will receive X2 branding.

So far 37568 AU58ECJ has appeared with X2 branding; pink front window vinyl on upper deck and rear window vinyl on lower deck similar to the B7s

37570 AU58ECT has appeared in plain livery and both Geminis have Lowestoft depot names rather than the X2 Lowestoft to Norwich fleet names. 

Three of them will retain plain livery so they can be used on other things such as rail replacement on Sundays and as back up for the X1 if needed.

A third Gemini 37566 AU58ECE arrived at Lowestoft yesterday and has spent the last 24 hours over the pits at Gasworks Road depot. A few more are currently at Full Circle being repainted for both Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. 

My thanks to Chris for the report and to Syd Eade for the identity of the third Gemini. I am also indebted to James Race for the photo of 37566
