Routemaster Continues In Service

For the third day in a row, First Great Yarmouth were continuing to use Routemaster 39480 JJD480D in public service today

In addition to its use on the 6 to Bradwell and the 7 to Belton, it was also employed on service 8 between the James Paget Hospital and Caister.

After a message from my sister in law that it was on the 8s this afternoon, I mentioned it to regular contributor Jamie Skinner who was hopeful of gaining a ride on it.

Whilst awaiting its arrival, Lowestoft heritage liveried ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL sailed past with the 881 from the East Norfolk Sixth Form College and he, naturally, got a photo of it!

However, he didn't have to wait too long before RML2480 appeared from the opposite direction heading towards Great Yarmouth on the 8

Not one to turn down an offer, he boarded for a short journey to Southtown Road with his mission accomplished!

My thanks to Jamie for the report and photos. Let's hope it continues in service for a few days more so I can get a ride on her too!
