New Arrivals Due

With production activity increasing at Bernard Matthews in the lead up to Christmas, First Eastern Counties are having to provide additional buses to cope with transporting more workers. Already Caister Road has retrieved Trident 32809 T809LLC from Norwich training duties for such work.

We recently received information from First that two more buses would arrive at Caister Road to enable First Great Yarmouth cope with demand. Straightaway Grahame began investigations to identify what was going to arrive through his contacts locally and in Essex

Later we found that the newcomers would be two Scania saloons from First Essex and, not only that, they were identified to be 65672/7 SN51UYE/L. The former has been with First Eastern Counties before when based at Ipswich. They are expected to arrive in the next day or so.

My thanks to Grahame for the detective work and to the contacts at First for the information.
