Very Last Day of the 61

Today was the very last day of the Anglian/Konect bus 61 service which on Saturdays only operates between Kessingland High Street and Lowestoft Bus Station. See the timetable below.
Our regular Lowestoft correspondent Simon Bartram was on hand to record the last runs in Lowestoft this afternoon (assuming they would run that is!)

They did though with the appropriate 455 (AN61LAN) arriving at Lowestoft Bus Station one minute early on the 13:25 from Kessingland. The offside views show the amended branding of 455 following the shortening of the 61 route.

After a quick turnaround AN61LAN departed for the very last time on the 61 back to Kessingland with a friendly wave from the driver.

And that was it - the end of an era with regular Anglian/Konect bus services in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth coming to an end. My thanks to Simon for his help and for his photos to support this post.
