Monday Morning Mooch

After the school run this morning I nipped in to town to see what was about and initially the short answer was not much. Although just before I left there was a small surprise with a Solo!

With Shearings and National Holidays coaches beginning to use Marine Parade more for overnighting of their coaches I did a quick tour of the seafront - not expecting to see anything. A newish Skills coach was parked up on the road plus there was Shearings Setra BK10EJD waiting outside the Carlton Hotel to load (top).

With the aim of checking the Olympian situation in the rear yard of First's Caister Road depot, I turned down Salisbury Road. In front of me ready to move off from Great Yarmouth High School was Belle Coaches Volvo SIL9044 (centre).

Looking in the yard at First's depot I noted that three of the Olys were still present. They were 34108/11/4  registered W435/1/4CWX respectively. Keeping them company was Wright Renown 66169 W369EOW.

I then passed through Market Gates and found an Our Bus Optare Solo, MX58AAY, on the stand ready to return home (Incorrect apparently - see comment below) following its run to the East Norfolk Sixth Form College earlier this morning. The 27 seater was new to A1A Travel of  Birkenhead in September 2008. It passed to M&H Coaches of Trefant in June 2011 from where it was recently acquired by Our Bus.
