Anglianbus 61 ~ The Last Runs

As you will already be aware, Anglianbus ceases operating services after today although it ran the 61 route connecting Lowestoft with Kessingland for the last time yesterday.

Regular contributor Robert Kelly tells me that the company began in September 1981 in Loddon, Norfolk after moving from London as Jubilee Coaches, trading as Anglian Coaches. The PSV Circle News Sheet for July 1981 refers and at the time the fleet consisted entirely of Ford motor coaches.

In March 1985, Anglian acquired Plaxton Supreme bodied Ford R1114 SVF510W from Norfolk Motor Services. During its time with the company it was re-registered KSU412 before being sold on in 2000

The last service from Kessingland, the 13:25 departure to Lowestoft Bus Station, and the 13:55 return was operated under the Anglianbus name for the last time by the appropriately 61 liveried Scania OmniLink AN61LAN.

The last 61 service to Kessingland operated under the Anglianbus banner 
My appreciation goes to Simon Bartram for recording the last service runs for which I am very grateful and my thanks too to Robert Kelly for the research.
