Rail Replacement Sunday

Today is the second day of the nine day closure of the Norwich to Great Yarmouth and the Norwich to Lowestoft rail lines to train services. This is due to major signalling and track renewal work.

I looked in at Great Yarmouth station twice this afternoon and observed a couple of different coaches in use (for a change!) The first was Neoplan MM10BUS, operated by M&M Staffing Services Limited of Cooksmill Green near Chelmsford. I had previously reported its appearance on a similar service from Lowestoft station in October 2018 (see More Lowestoft Rail Replacements).

The second visit saw the use of Tendering Travel's RY57ZKK, a Berkhof Axial bodied Scania K340EB4. On both occasions Wright Coaches' Scania K114EB4 R25PTS was on standby.

Meanwhile at Lowestoft, Simon Bartram reported the earlier use of Angies Coaches' Neoplan T777GSM and King Long WJI5242 with Belle Coaches employing Setra LIL9454 and MIL3503.
