Cromer & Sheringham Visit

Sanders former Arriva Scotland West VDL/Plaxton YJ07JSY at Cromer Bus Station
And with Grahame Bessey's report, its on to post number 1001....

'Yesterday I had a trip up the coast with the family to try the new Konectbus Open Topper for size! We left in glorious sunshine only to arrive in Cromer with the gloom descending!, We just missed the open topper so we boarded the 2 service from Norwich to Sheringham which was Optare Tempo operated, first time for 
Konnectbus open topper R739XRV was formerly in use on the Isle of Wight
me on one of these and very impressed, driver was helpful and could not ask for a better trip and a very cheap fare too!

We had a look around the Railway Station and then decided to have a wander around the town before having the first of three journeys aboard the Olympian Open Topper! The rain was unfortunately coming down by now so it was upstairs but covered back to 
For the rail buffs, Class 37 D6732 was in action on the North Norfolk Railway

The kids loved it and and we managed an outside journey later in the day after a nice Fish and Chip lunch at Mary Janes in Cromer!

Big Thanks to driver Jonny Whittaker who looked after us whilst aboard and the kids even had a goodie bag thrown in for good measure!. Well done to Konectbus!

On the way home, we 

Ex Great Yarmouth Transport Bristol VR/ ECW No 29 CVF29T at Trimingham
Owned by a Mr Mick Peters, it is used as a summer house overlooking the sea
returned via the coast road, and I wondered if a certain Great Yarmouth Transport Bristol VR was still sitting in a field at Trimingham, indeed it was still there in First Blue Bus livery as it has been for a few years now! Such a shame it cannot be returned to its former glory!

Great day was had by all!'

Many thanks for the report and photos Grahame
