#TBT F106CCL

After a week off following the publication of our annual reviews, Throw Back Thursday returns with a look at a vehicle with another Great Yarmouth based operator


Ambassador Travel (Anglia) came into being in 1984 following the hiving off of coach services by Eastern Counties. The coach featured in this post is Plaxton Paramount bodied Volvo B10M-60 F106CCL which was delivered new to the company in February 1989

Towards the end of its working life it was primarily used on schools service in the Great Yarmouth area and both photos show it in use to ferry pupils from St Mary's Roman Catholic School in Gorleston to Great Yarmouth on the 826 service during May 2007

The vehicle is still thought to be extant in a canabilised state in the rear yard of Ambassador's Gapton Hall site as witnessed in this picture posted to Flickr by Zak Nelson

So that's it for this year then - all that remains is to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016.
