More Vehicles On eBay With Local Connections

Further to Saturday's post on the long lost Norfolk Bedford on ebay, which incidentally has so far received 13 bids, there are three other bus and coach entries with Norfolk connections

KIG1857 on ASDA duty in Great Yarmouth  in July 2012
The first of interest is former Ambassador Travel Plaxton Paragon bodied Volvo B12M KIG1857. New to the Great Yarmouth operator as FN52HRM in November 2002, the coach is currently being offered for sale by  Durham based Snowden Coaches at £19,500 with nineteen days of bidding left to go

The second vehicle with a local connection is Alexander bodied Volvo B10BLE VAG608R owned by Acle based Our Bus. It was new to Busways in April 1998 as R249KRG. Stagecoach North East later sold it to dealers Ensign in November/ December 2012 who
VU52UEB in St Stephen's Street, Norwich in late 2009
moved it on to Velvet of Eastleigh. Our Bus acquired it from Stagecarriage of Grangetown in August last year. It is thought to be too large a vehicle for the operator's current requirements

The final bus is that of former Norse owned Optare Solo VU52UEB. It was acquired from Cameron and Farish of Jedburgh (trading as Munro) in March 2009 and used primarily on the County Hall Circular 100 service. Following withdrawal of the 100 the bus was seldom was used in service. The 33 seater was acquired by a Wiltshire operator earlier this year
