First Great Yarmouth Update

News from First Great Yarmouth is that two Wright Eclipse Geminis have headed back to Norwich this morning following a loan period. With the end of seasonal service 3, the local PVR has reduced meaning the return of 36172/80 (BD11CFV/Z) to the 'Fine City'

 In addition, two Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs have also transferred on loan to Norwich. They are 32205/12 (LT52WTL/V) which currently leaves only three Presidents at Caister Road (excluding the open topper)

 My thanks to our friends at First Great Yarmouth for the news update



  1. Re the photo of 32212. I wonder how many readers can remember this junction with King Street being called Tom Green's Corner?

  2. Yes I remember it well as my mother used to work in Divers public house opposite where the Clarks shoe shop is now

    The Tom Greens building is still there with a similar business Greenwoods Menswear trading from the site

  3. Ah, Divers bar. Spent many nights in there as a youngster before moving on to the more upmarket Star Hotel Bar. Happy days (when real buses were blue and ivory).
