Geminis In the Sun

As everyone is now aware, the X1 Lowestoft - Great Yarmouth - Norwich - Kings Lynn - Peterborough service is now in the hands of the newly arrived Enviro 400s

This has led to vehicles previously used on the X1, the Wright Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B9TLs, to be cascaded to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft depots

Lowestoft's allocation is 37563-71 AU58ECA/C-
F/J/N/T/V with all, but the last three, branded for use on the X2 service between Lowestoft and Norwich

Great Yarmouth has the remaining eight 37572-9 AU58ECW-Z, AU58EDC/F/J/K plus the recent arrival from Ensignbus FJ08FYN, now with fleetnumber 37562

All have been repainted into the First refreshed livery

Regular contributor Grahame Bessey was at a sunny Norwich Surrey Street Bus Station on Saturday afternoon where he witnessed a few of the Geminis in service.

Grahame also observed the the presence of Freestones Coaches Scania K340/Irizar YN08JBX in Megabus livery

My thanks to Grahame for the photos

  1. Call me pedantic if you wish althought don't call me late for dinner), but does anyone else wonder why those diagonal stripe extend partially into the advert panels, when they are to be covered up. Just sayin'.
