To return to the subject of this post, yesterday regular contributor Jamie Skinner sent me the following email:-
'Haven't really had the chance to get pictures but good to see Olympian 34108 W435CWX still out in service, I haven't seen 34186 S686AAE materialise yet though, so if it is roadworthy or not I'm not sure..
Anyway, 34108 came roaring past me on The Conge and luckily I had a chance to get a picture.(top right) It was operating the Town Centre 7 from Belton, funnily enough with no passengers on board though! I guess it passed through Market Gates after I spotted it and then to the depot to work a Bernard Matthews duty soon after'
This morning I received another email from Jamie. Whilst going for his No 7 bus to Belton at the Magdalen Arms stop in Gorleston, he was passed by an Olympian working in the opposite direction. It was 34108 on the No 8 service to Caister via Great Yarmouth - Groundhog Day!!
My thanks to Jamie for his reports and photos
