Local Round Up

A quick tour was made around the usual haunts in Great Yarmouth in the hope they might yield some good photo opportunities
Shearings Holidays' Setras BF10VCJ and BF10VCO have Grand Tourer livered Volvo MX05AFV for company
As I had seen coaches parked up there earlier in the week, I started on Marine Parade where there were five examples within close proximity of the Wellington Pier

Of interest were three Shearings and one National Holiday vehicles. The former comprised two Setras 216 BF10VCJ and 221 BF10VCO plus Volvo 705 MX05AFV
The sun is welcome but it can play havoc with photography as my photo of  National Holidays NH13FWH shows
The lone National Holidays' coach was Setra NH13FWH. Its friendly driver was preparing for a trip to Thursford whilst his passengers were enjoying a Christmas lunch at the Carlton Hotel
Norse Commercial Plaxton Panther bodied Volvo B12M YN60BZH basks in the sun at Beach Coach Station
The next stop was Beach Coach Station where three coaches were present with the most interesting being Norse Commercial Volvo B12M YN60BZH. The others were from the Neals and Whippet fleets
The last of today's Bernard Mathews quintet, Volvo Olympian 34114 W434CWX, with Sheldon Rees at the wheel
I then crossed the road to await the Bernard Matthews cavalcade, in the hope of a repeat photo of five deckers. Five did in fact appear but I was unable to capture all of them in one photo as they were too far apart! For the record the quintet, in order of appearance, were 32061, 34186, 34108, 34111 and 34114

Finally another First ALX400, 30888 W743DWX, followed me along Beccles Road also on its way to Bernard Matthews
