Another visit to Kings Lynn

A seond trip up to Kings Lynn for me this year to catch up with the latest happenings in West Norfolk. The Norfolk Green name has been replaced with Stagecoach Norfolk now, meaning the corporate image of Stagecoach is slowly beginning to show itself in the town. A number of corporate liveried vehicles are on loan here to cover repainting of native vehicles into the new beachball livery plus a batch of brand new Optare Solo SR's have been purchased.
The new corporate look of Kings Lynn Bus Station.

Two ALX400's have recently arrived from Stagecoach East, 18348 AE55DKV & 18349 AE55DKX have appeared to bolster the fleet as the batch of Optare Spectra vehicles here appear to be being phased out, none were in use yesterday and all were parked up at the Depot when i visited.

Kings Lynn has always been one of my favourite places for photography but the new bus station layout has put paid to many opportunities due to the new bus stop layout and a new exit at one end meaning on days like yesterday the sun cuts out may areas to photograph, a nice cloudy day is on order for the next trip!

Lynxbus and Konectbus also run services in Kings Lynn and i noticed Lynx 35 service was departing to Hunstanton with good loads on most trips out of the Bus Station. First also continue to operate the X1 service between Norwich and Peterborough.

An enjoyable few hours in the town catching up with latest arrivals and a look at the new bus station, i did manage most of the photos i was after, even managed a few at Dereham on the way home!
