  1. Re the 62 - it has been operating some two years now since First withdrew the 63 Ipswich - Framlingham service. However it is to be extended on certain days to Saxmundham via Rendham thus restroring the Fram - Sax service, Also the Turban Centre is in Woodbridge, and Bridge St in Framlingham!

  2. Thanks for that Steve - I have now corrected the locations of the terminals of the route.
    Difficult to prepare these details when the better half is trying to divert your attention onto other things!!
