The site had a Welcome Break located there and provided an opportunity for coaches and buses from almost anywhere to stop off.
Regular contributor Jim Long used to look in there at weekends especially at the busy periods and says this was his 'Beach Coach Station'
|E41OAH joined the local fleet in August 1987 and later saw work with First Northampton and First Edinburgh|
|E40OAH arrived in September 1987 and subsequently received a mainly white livery for a local builders' merchant|
Sadly coaches no longer stop there as the Welcome Break facility has gone to be replaced by a Mothercare and Burger King
Many thanks for the photos Jim - I can well remember the 'greenhouses' running about Great Yarmouth and even used them to get to work
You mean there's no pic of me stopping there in 1989/90 after swapping an Ipswich Buses Atlantean over while on Boro'line - my first ever visit to Constantine Rd depot - and getting told off for signing for a meal at Copdock Services when I had no passengers? I don't know - no stamina these photographers!!ReplyDelete
Thinking about that stomach again!ReplyDelete
Years of careful love and nurturing have gone into that! I had been towed up from Dartford that day by rigid bar and no power steering or heating and was well hungry by time I stopped for my dinner!ReplyDelete
