Saturday in Bury St Edmunds

Stagecoach East 22330 resting in between services
Most of Saturday was spent in Bury St Edmunds. Whilst the sisters were enjoying their retail therapy, I disappeared for an hour to the bus station

Upon arrival there was nothing much out of the normal happening. Stagecoach East MAN/ Alexander 22330 AE51RZJ was laying over after working a service 11 from Cambridge. ADL Trident 18346 AE55DKO also worked the 13:50 service 11 ex Cambridge

Chambers W425WGH leaves the bus station with the 753 to Sudbury
Chambers' deckers appearing were ex London General Presidents 565 W425WGH and 573 W491WGH. I also renewed my acquaintance with Optare Solo MX58XDB, now in Chambers' colours. She was a regular on Anglianbus services in the Great Yarmouth area and was often employed on the 581 route from Beccles

Mulleys were also using one of their former Anglianbus Scania/ Wright Axcess-Ultralow buses
Mulleys ALX400 X56XAW was painted at Mardens in August but is still lacking fleetnames and destination display
However, just when I thought things were getting a little mundane, a Mulley's orange liveried decker turned up in the shape of X56XAW on the 355 service from Mildehall. The vehicle is one of two 
Alexander ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL double deckers added to the fleet in August 2014 and was new to Dublin Bus as 00D70107 in November 2000

BF63ZSK on the 12:30 National Express service from London Victoria
Great Yarmouth based operator Ambassador Travel was employing Volvo B9R/ Caetano Levante 210 BF63ZSK on the National Express 491 service from the capital to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

The coach is one of three new to Ambassador in January this year and it was running some fifteen minutes behind schedule

Finally Stephenson's continue to operate the Bury town services marketed under the Breeze slogan
Stephensons ADL Enviro200 461 EU60CBF in charge of the 16 from Newmarket
It was also using specially branded Suffolk Rider vehicles for its service 16 between Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds via Red Lodge and Mildenhall. ADL Enviro200s EU60CBF and YX11CTO were observed on the route

Whilst the day was primarily cloudy and overcast, I have used some software to enable the photos to appear more presentable
