Routemaster Pressed Into Service

I had to call into Gorleston Library this afternoon to return some books when I received a message from 'fellow partner in crime' Grahame Bessey

He said that he had been informed that one of the First Routemasters was about to be used in service to Belton. Ex London Transport RML 2480, JJD480D, was duly recorded in use on the 7 to Belton complete with conductor. The only indication it was on the route was an A4 piece of paper stuck to the front screen showing 7

It seems likely that First Great Yarmouth were short of buses at that time and hence why 39480 was pressed into service. I wasn't the only one taking photos and its appearance drew a few comments from shoppers

My thanks to both Grahame and First for the heads up
