Damp and Chilly Lowestoft

An early start on Saturday morning in order to hopefully beat the expected rain that was forecast as i headed for Lowestoft to catch up with the latest happenings in the suffolk town and photograph the latest arrivals and outgoing Jersey Darts before they head South.
37570 AU58ECT leaving for Norwich on the X22.
The X22 service has been recently introduced to run alongside the X2 service giving a frequency of every 15 minutes between Lowestoft and Norwich and a fast link on some journeys. The routes are mainly operated by the fleet of Gemini double decks although Lowestoft Corporation liveried ALX400 30888 was also in use yesterday.

66168 W368EOW working the 99 service to Kessingland.
Former Essex Volvo 66168 has recently moved over to Lowestoft with Dart 43859 moving back to Yarmouth, 66168 was employed on the 99's whilst i was there and good loads were noted on most trips out of the bus station. None of the recent Gemini transfers from Yarmouth were noted, all on the Norwich end of  X2 duties no doubt.
45118 ST09JPT working the 101 service to Gunton.
Two of the recently returned Enviro 200 Darts were noted in use, 45116 & 45118 were both on town services, 45117 is currently at Yarmouth for MOT. 45118 has had Lowestoft names applied but still carries part of its Purple line branding from its time in Norwich.

The heavy rain put paid to any further photos so it was off to do some Christmas shopping and a sneaky pint to warm up (Purely medicinal of course!)             Grahame.
