Saturday in Bury

Stephensons' YN55NHF at Bury Bus Station destined for Howard Estate
Another Saturday outing to Bury St Edmunds on lovely sunny unseasonally warmish Saturday

Whilst the other half and her sisters were shopping I spent a couple of hours observing bus activity in the vicinity of the bus station on St Andrew Street North.

I choose this location as there were temporary road works at the Arc Shopping Centre requiring some diversions

The first noteworthy sighting was that of Stephensons' Scania/ East
Stagecoach Trident AE55DJV arrives at Bury with a Cambridge service 
Lancs OmniDekka 634 YN55NHF on Bury Breeze Service 1. No 634 was new to London United as their SLE12 in September 2005

Two of the Stagecoach in Cambridgeshire ADL Trident/Enviro400s made an appearance on the hourly frequency Service 11 from
Cambridge. They were 18336 AE55DJV and 18346 AE55DKO

Of particular interest was the use of former Konectbus Volvo B7TL/ Plaxton President V301LGC.
Ex Konect President V301LGC is now with Chambers as their 561
Now numbered 561 in the Chambers' fleet, LGC looked very smart in its new livery
Other Chambers' deckers observed were 566 W428WGH and 575 W516WGH - both new to London General
in the year 2000

Another former London General decker was being used by Coach Services on the 84 route to Thetford. Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TL X509EGK joined the Thetford based operator in 2013 and is often employed on this route
Coach Services X509EGK departs for Thetford on the 84 service

Of local interest was the use of Ambassador Travel's Scania/ Caetano Levante 207 FJ09DXB on the 491 National Express service to London

Two former Anglianbus Scania/ Wright Axcess Ultraflow buses appeared on local services. They were MUI7924 (ex R85EMB) and MUI7949 (R86EMB) - both new to Chester City

Former Anglian R86EMB now registered as MUI7949 in the Mulleys fleet
Finally, two Galloway vehicles were in attendance in the form of DAF/ Wright Cadet 258 1754PP and VDL/ Plaxton Centro 278 AY09BYC
