Tuesday Observations

With this week being the last one of the school year, many schools are organising trips out to various attractions in the area. Yesterday and today I have seen at least four Reynolds Coaches each day awaiting Lynn Grove students on Beccles Road for trips out but alas no camera was present!

Three of  the Smiths Coaches were (left to right )Volvos FP51EUN, 333SXU and Denis Javelin FN02HGY
This afternoon many schools were visiting the Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth with coaches from Sanders, Norse and Smith Coaches being called in to provide transport. Unable to get photos of the first two named (as I was driving) I did come across five coaches parked up near the Sea Life Centre on Marine Parade. All five were being operated for Smiths although one was on hire from Peelings Coaches in the form of Plaxton Paragon bodied Volvo B12M JJZ9130

The Smiths' foursome included FJ53KZK, a Volvo B12M with Berkhof Axial bodywork and Volvo B12M FP51EUN. Also observed was Plaxton Paragon bodied Volvo B10M 333SXU (previously Y152EAY) having a rare outing to the seaside. Making up the numbers was Dennis Javelin FN02HGY

Located at Beach Coach Station was Norfolk Coachways YJZ2787. This is a 1996 Volvo registered in May of that year to Paterson & Brown of Kilbirnie on the west coast of Scotland as N94HSJ. It has also been registered YSV608 and has seven previous owners before the present keeper reports Cazana

Meanwhile, First Norwich Purple Line 33166 LR02LYD continues in use in Great Yarmouth today being employed on the 8 route between the James Paget Hospital and Caister's Second Avenue.
