I was hopeful in that it might be one of the two remaining red liveried Scania OmniCity deckers and, surprise surprise, it was! However, the registration threw me completely as it had special plate BB57BUS. Now was it LX59CNC or LX59CNJ? A prompt reply to my tweet to BorderBus confirmed it was the latter which also now has the fleet number 210.
BorderBus is currently awaiting certification for the newly painted 209 LX59CNE (see BorderBus Repaint) before the next one goes away for the same treatment at Hants & Dorset Trim.
The operator also reports that the 580 Bungay to Great Yarmouth service is doing extremely well and proving to be very popular.
