Latest First Developments

A reliable source at First informs me that a second Green Line Volvo B9 double decker is due to arrive at Great Yarmouth's Caister Road depot very soon for use on X1 services.
Green Line LK58EDJ seen in Reading on 13th October last year.  Photo by kind permission of Eastleighbusman: 
First Berkshire 37275 LK58EDJ is to join sister 37274 already on the route and it will also be painted in a modified Excel blue livery. This could no doubt cause some confusion as its registration is very similar to that of Gemini 37578 AU58EDJ which is also in Excel blue!

On the subject of Geminis, two further examples are to eventually go to Lowestoft plus 37566 AU58ECE is due back from repairs within the next week or so. These moves reflect the increase in the number of buses required for the new X2/X22 timetable due to commence from 6th December.

My thanks to Eastleighbusman for the photo and to my contact at First

  1. Hoping the modified Excel livery is like the two B7RLEs in Ipswich!
