Latest First Happenings

A busy start to the week for First Eastern Counties. We begin with news that a batch of Volvo B9TL/Wright Geminis are being transferred to East Anglia from First Leeds. The full list of arrivals due is 36181 - 36202. 36181 (BF12KXU) & 36185 (BN12JYM) were collected today and have now arrived in Norfolk. The vehicles were purchased new in 2012 for First Games Transport operations for the London Olympics prior to heading North to Leeds.
