Revisited Norwich June 2007

Still seems hard to believe that 2007 is now eleven years ago, its always nice to look back at photos and how things have evolved over the years, this is about the time i really enjoyed days out with the camera and was always pretty much up to date with things, sadly its a bit more difficult these days but with the power of social media information is shared a lot easier!

First up is former First Routemaster 39717 (RML2717) SMK717F in its much discussed version of Great Yarmouth Transport livery. It was working the Norfolk Show shuttles on this day in June 2007 and is seen here in Castle Meadow. It now resides in Thailand.

Anglian had recently purchased a batch of ex Harris Bus Volvo Olympians, R361DJN was new to them but worked under the banner of East Thames Buses until 2004, it passed to York Pullman in 2008.

Sanders DAF DB250 YJ55WPA was new in 2005 and is pictured in Castle Meadow working the 43 service out of the city.

As regular blog readers will know Shearings operate from Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area and we often feature them in our posts, Volvo /Plaxton Panther GT03WWW is pictured above in the combined Wallace Arnold/Shearings livery which was applied after the two major tour operators merged with Shearings buying the Leeds based company. It was originally part of the WA Grand Tourer fleet hence the GT number plate. It has since passed to Deveron Coaches in Aberdeenshire.

Finally we see FEC Volvo B7TL/ALX400 32653 AU05MUV wearing an allover wrap for what was the new B&Q store in Hall Road, Norwich. It also wore a wrap for Save The Children during its time in Norwich, it is now part of the Ipswich Fleet.
