Scania OmniDekka 61 PJ54YZU
The Many Colours Of Ipswich Buses

Following Grahame Bessey's photos illustrating the variations in liveries at Norwich Bus Station yesterday, I have received an email from Jim Long saying that Ipswich Buses also have many of their vehicles with different colour schemes too
Freshly painted  OmniDekka 62 PJ54YZV

Jim's first photo is of Scania OmniDekka 61 PJ54YZU in green and white and is pictured in Greenfinch Avenue 

The second is of sister Scania 62 PJ54YZV newly repainted in the Park and Ride livery also shown in Greenfinch Avenue

The next photo shows a Scania CN230UD with an Optare
Scania / Optare Olympus 68 YJ60KGX
Olympus body. Number 68 YJ60KGX is pictured on Norwich Road earlier this month

The penultimate photo is of a Plaxton President bodied Dennis Trident. Red and blue 22 LR02BBJ is seen at Ipswich Buses Constantine Road depot in November last year, shortly after arrival

The final photo is of gold liveried DAF
Red and blue 22 LR02BBJ Constantine Road depot
DB250/East Lancs Lowlander 100 PN52XBM. The colour scheme celebrates 100 years of Ipswich Buses in 2003

Jim tells me that all the buses shown in these photos are still in their respective liveries today.

Many thanks for the information and photos Jim.
