#TBT Eastern Counties F101AVG

Our ThrowBack Thursday this week features a Leyland Olympian from the Eastern Counties fleet

Northern Counties bodied F101AVG is pictured at the now demolished Eastern Counties Wellington Road bus station in Great Yarmouth

Complete with post NBC Eastern Counties colours, it has just returned on a 622 service from Hemsby Beach

It was one of a batch of five new to the company in April 1989 and was based in the town for a while. So much so, it received First Blue Bus livery as well which can be viewed here

On renumbering into the First series, it received the fleet number of 34821 and in later years was based at Kings Lynn

Residential development now occupies the site of the depot and bus station
