|Sanders Coaches' DAF 538FN exits Market Gates Bus Station|
Soon after my arrival at Market Gates this afternoon, a Sanders Coaches' Van Hool Alizee bodied DAF arrived to work the 13:35 to North Walsham
The registration was a little familiar with 538FN having adorned a former Great Yarmouth based Caroline Seagull Jonckheere bodied DAF in 2008

I then walked to Beach Coach Station to observe the two deckers usually appearing on the afternoon's Bernard Matthew's contract working; expecting to see the recent First Leicester arrival in use
Unfortunately I was out of luck as two Geminis were employed instead - 37575 AU58ECZ and 37579 AU58EDK
However, the trip wasn't in vain as Simonds Volvo B10M SLK886 was the sole occupant of the coach station
A speedy stroll, to Caister Road depot in the hope of that I might catch 32061 W221XBD there instead, was rewarded with the ALX400 sitting in the sun waiting for a photo to be taken.
|The third ex First Leicester ALX400 32061 W221XBD entered service today|
It appears the faulty destination screen has not been repaired; it showed 'Greater Anglia Rail Replacement' as 32061 left for Caister!
Finally, following gearbox replacement, Dennis Dart 42921 EU05AUN is now on loan to Lowestoft
My thanks to Ryan for the update
