Friday Farewells

Following on from my previous report, it appears that the last Volvo Olympian at Caister Road will not remain at the depot on its own for very long.

34108 W435CWX is due to leave on Friday and will be taken away by Alpha Recovery for scrapping. Its removal means the end of a long association of the type with First's Great Yarmouth depot

Also expected to suffer the same fate on the same day is Volvo B10BLE 66169 W369EOW - also to be removed by Alpha Recovery. The saloon had returned to Caister Road in mid November last year to help out with the increased number of buses required for Bernard Matthews duties. It was withdrawn at the end of December as being non DDA compliant and has remained in the rear yard ever since

My thanks to my sources at First for the information and to Roger Bellward for the photos
