The Oldies

A quick visit to town earlier today and I noticed both of the two recently transferred B10BLE's at work on the 6 to Bradwell. The next couple of days are expected to be their last days in local service before they are withdrawn as being none DDA compliant.

Volvo B10BLE 66168 had just completed a circuit of the Market Gates to Bradwell service when photographed today
The saloon is off to Rotherham in the new year for DDA work and will be retained by them as a 'paint spare'
Whilst out and about, I thought I would look in at First's Caister Road depot and it appeared to be eerily quiet. So I decided to take a look at what was lurking in the rear yard


Peering through the fencing I saw that four Volvo Olympians had been parked up. 34108 W435CWX was still beside 34112 W432CWX on the right hand side, whilst 34114 W434CWX had been moved to the rear south east corner taking up space which 34110 had vacated prior to its journey into preservation

34111 joins the withdrawn Olympian trio in the rear yard - on the left is 34114
The fourth member was 34111 W431CWX which was recently active on Bernard Matthews contract work. It is hoped that it will return to those duties in the new year
