#TBT Commuter Express

Our 'Throw Back Thursday' this week looks at the 'Commuter Express' which is though to have operated to Norwich during the early 1980's. I belive it was a fast version of the old 702 service which ran between Great Yarmouth and the city employing a specially branded saloon on the route to attract customers

The 43 seater single decker was an Eastern Coach Works bodied Bristol LH6L which was new to Eastern Counties in April 1978. In its early years, WEX930S was allocated to Great Yarmouth but it was later to found operating from Ipswich in ECOC livery

LH930  stayed with the company for ten years before being disposed of to Trimdon Motor Services. In April 1990 it passed to Bedlington & District of Ashington prior to scrapping at North Eastern Bus Breakers in August 1993
