Out and About

I had business to attend to today which saw me out and about in the Great Yarmouth area. After completing my errands I looked in at the town's Beach Coach Station and unusually saw a couple of coaches present

Two Van Hools at Beach Coach Station this morning
It seems that most Fridays, during the school term, there nearly always seems to be a representative from Sanders Coaches present and in this case it was Van Hool Alizee bodied VDL 804 YJ07JFV. It joined the North Norfolk operator in May 2009 having been new to Edinburgh Coachlines in May 2007

The second coach was another Van Hool in the form of Leons of Stafford DT13LCT which carries the Dunwood Travel fleetname

ADL Enviro200 YW14FHS returns to Beccles with the 13:10 service from Great Yarmouth's Market Gates
I returned home via Southtown Road only to see ADL Enviro200 YW14FHS pass me in the opposite direction on Anglian's 11:25 Service 81 from Beccles. The bus was new to Henderson Travel of Hamilton during July last year and still wears the Scottish operator's fleet number 214. The vehicle is currently on loan to Anglian and has temporarily received their fleet number 399 as well!


  1. Are you sure of the Sanders VDL history, i thought this was purchased new by them?

  2. Thanks for your comment but I have checked with 'Bus Lists on the Web' which confirms my report. However, the subsequent history was incorrect as it went direct to Sanders from Edinburgh Coachlines and hence the updated entry

    1. They did have I think 2 similar coaches new in 2007, are they in a consecutive numer batch with this maybe?

    2. I originally confused it with VDL registered YJ07JSV - perhaps you may be doing the same
